Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805952411, Paperback)Man has not failed the institution of marriage, marriage has failed man. In her insightful book, "Marriage: The Second Blood Covenant", Betty Joe Jackson explores the dynamics of this traditional relationship. Combining science, history, sociology, and religion, Jackson asserts that marriage as we know it is not the most natural or most successful situation for humans.
Jackson fears that people are selling their children a fairy tale version of wedded bliss that simply does not exist. In reality, Jackson feels, this is forcing people into a structure which may not be healthy.
By looking at the family and sexual relationships of other species in the natural world, humankind’s unique institution begins to seem questionable. Studying the biblical and traditional roles of men and women on which most people base their idea of marriage, Jackson breaks these down to reveal her solutions for living a happier life.
