It’s the season for saying “I do” but before couples tie the knot, a new book suggests they might want to untangle their values.
Commitment to a spouse often bumps up against the quest for self fulfillment. Are they compatible? On one hand people want to get married and believe they should. On the other hand, they strive for personal happiness and are willing to leave a marriage that no longer provides it. Andrew Cherlin, author of "The Marriage-Go-Round: The State of Marriage and the Family in America Today" talks with Regina Brett about how individualism and self-fulfillment changed the traditional American family life. Local marriage counselor Karen Tomoff advises how to keep relationships and self identity in sync.
The Marriage-Go-Round, Friday at 9 on The Sound of Ideas.

Guests

Andrew J. Cherlin, Ph.D., Department of Sociology, Johns Hopkins University & author, "The Marriage-Go-Round: The State of Marriage and the Family in America Today"
