Reviews

'This book explains, defends, and promotes a traditional ('conjugal') idea of marriage with philosophical, non-faith-based arguments that also indicate why same-sex marriage is not marriage and why no-fault divorce law is incompatible with the institution of marriage. The authors give a clear and significant philosophical exposition of what's wrong with the ideas of marriage that have been developed in the literature (including court judgments) favoring same-sex marriage.' John Finnis, University of Oxford
'Patrick Lee and Robert George add a profound historical and philosophical dimension to the sociological data on the importance of marriage as a social institution. Their careful analysis, dealing fairly and sympathetically with the best arguments from a point of view different from theirs, makes this book highly relevant to current debates. It should be welcomed by thoughtful persons who are in no way prejudiced against individuals with same-sex orientation, but who find something wrong with the argument for same-sex marriage based on equal access to the institution of marriage.' Mary Ann Glendon, Learned Hand Professor of Law, Harvard University, Massachusetts
