  • This book explores one of the most basic human endeavours - couple formation - with particular attention to those relationships that lead to marriage. It provides a contemporary global perspective on the process in various regions of the world, and reviews concepts such as modernisation v traditionalism, arranged marriage v free choice, love v family practicality, cohabitation v marriage, and collectivism v individualism. The editors also investigate associated practices, customs, traditions, rituals and ceremonies.
