Why We Need Adultery


I had an awesome interview last night with Susan Squire, author of I Don't: A Contrarian History Of Marriage (she's written two other books that I haven't read but plan to, asap). We talked about her theory about why a tradition of adultery is helpful for marriage, what American culture gets wrong in its conception of marriage, and tons of other interesting stuff.

The cool thing about talking to her was that her ideas about marriage are backed up by history--what people have been doing for thousands of years. She's not basing her opinions on some random study or a psychological theory, she's basing them on the way people have acted, and there's actual, historical evidence to back up what she's saying.

If (when) I get this thing transcribed (it's two hours!), it'll be a super interesting read.
