In nineteenth-century America, the law insisted that marriage was a permanent relationship defined by the husband's authority and the wife's dependence. Yet at the same time the law created the means to escape that relationship. How was this possible? And how did wives and husbands experience marriage within that legal regime? These are the complexities that Hendrik Hartog plumbs in a study of the powers of law and its limits. Exploring a century and a half of marriage through stories of struggle and conflict mined from case records, Hartog shatters the myth of a golden age of stable marriage. He describes the myriad ways the law shaped and defined marital relations and spousal identities, and how individuals manipulated and reshaped the rules of the American states to fit their needs. We witness a compelling cast of characters: wives who attempted to leave abusive husbands, women who manipulated their marital status for personal advantage, accidental and intentional bigamists, men who killed their wives' lovers, couples who insisted on divorce in a legal culture that denied them that right. As we watch and listen to these men and women, enmeshed in law and escaping from marriages, we catch reflected images both of ourselves and our parents, of our desires and our anxieties about marriage. Hartog shows how our own conflicts and confusions about marital roles and identities are rooted in the history of marriage and the legal struggles that defined and transformed it.

Men say understanding a woman is IMPOSSIBLE...This book is written by a Christian physician with many years of experience in counseling men in marital crisis. 1 Peter 3:7 encourages men to "live with their wives with understanding." Dr. Sharp's premise of marital failure is that many men do not understand their unique role in meeting the needs of their wives. The book is written using the author's personal life experiences and lessons learned from client situations. It is only in understanding his wife that a man can love her. The Bible teaches us that if a man does not understand his wife, he does not love her as Christ loved him. The book describes Dr. Sharp's experiences with his own family and the struggles he experienced with the loss of a son that made him realize that he had failed in being the kind of man his wife deserved. Then the book covers many of the situations men whom he has counseled have experienced and how they were encouraged to learn to think in a different manner. Topics like men's passivity, women's controlling tendencies, the submissive homemaker and the suffering servant husband are developed from a Biblical perspective. The Biblical account of the creation of man and woman is discussed and how their unique relationship in creation should bring a man to discover that a woman needs 1) support, 2) an emotional relationship, 3) praise and honor, 4) security, and 5) companionship from her husband. Another chapter describes the story of the quiet desperation of a man in crisis, wounded from his past, failed in his work, lost in his marriage, rejected by his children and searching for a higher meaning. Learning to develop the help-mate aspect of his wife goes a long way to bringing the man back on track. He must learn to deal with individual self-righteousness and then disciple his wife so they both can arrive at a place where each has a purity of heart. Dr. Sharp presents a convincing argument of the critical urgency for men to retu

Literary Nonfiction. "Human relationships are the tragic necessity of human life," wrote Willa Cather. She wasn't just kidding. The perpetual conflict between our need for others and our need to be alone underlies each of the first-person essays in this collection, which voice the difficulties, satisfactions, and absurdities of finding one's way in the social wilderness. The author takes a sentimental journey to New York, his hometown, remembered from a safe distance; and visits faraway places like Oaxaca, Mexico, where he talks about love and fidelity with the ghost of his dead friend; and northern Thailand, where he broods over his lack of a girlfriend and encounters "the man" of the title. Back home, love strikes with no less ferocity than it always has. He and his girlfriend lie awake at night and talk about the weightier implications of their love: whose vacuum cleaner will they keep when they live together? Ireland, whose work has been called "delightfully idiosyncratic and universally human" (Publishers Weekly), writes in the preface, "I often long for something in the presence of other people.... I'm longing for the person I am when I'm alone, who unfortunately can't join us. These essays are an attempt to subvert the dilemma."
