The State of Marriage and the Family in America Today

Andrew J. Cherlin's three decades of study have shown him that marriage in America is a social and political battlefield in a way that it isn’t in other developed countries. Americans marry and divorce more often and have more live-in partners than Europeans, and gay Americans have more interest in legalizing same-sex marriage. The difference comes from Americans’ embrace of two contradictory cultural ideals: marriage, a formal commitment to share one's life with another; and individualism, which emphasizes personal choice and self-development. Religion and law in America reinforce both of these behavioral poles, fueling turmoil in our family life and heated debate in our public life. Cherlin’s incisive diagnosis is an important contribution to the debate and points the way to slowing down the partnership merry-go-round.

SINCE 2002, THE SYMPOSIUM NEW WINE, NEW WINESKINS HAS OFFERED AN OPPORTUNITY for young Catholic moral theologians to engage in shared work and conversation. Here, the fruits of these labors are gathered into one collection, which represents the wide scope of the future of Catholic sexual ethics. This volume offers the first collection of a new generation's approaches to Catholic sexual ethics. The collection displays young scholars with diverse views, yet whose work moves beyond the impasses that have beset the field. The volume offers original and engaging essays on a variety of topics, from the hook-up culture and dating violence, to cohabitation and homosexuality, to contraception and natural family planning, to the promises and pitfalls of "the theology of the body." The authors display a fresh engagement with these issues in conversation with the Christian tradition and with contemporary culture. David Cloutier provides an introduction that locates this work within the past decades of Catholic scholarship, and articulates new categories for future work. The essays also offer practical insights and models that will interest pastors and lay ministers, as well as scholars. Contributors include: Fr. Nicanor Pier Giorgio Austriaco, O.P., Ph.D., S.T.L., is an assistant professor of biology and an instructor of theology at Providence College in Providence, Rhode Island. In theology, Fr.

If it were not for the vision and enterprise of Darryl F. Zanuck and 20th Century-Fox, chances are none of us would be enjoying widescreen films today. Instead, we'd still be watching movies and TV on the same postage-stamp screen that became standard when movies began to talk in 1927. This survey of Fox's contributions to the CinemaScope Revolution which that studio started back in 1953, examines no less than 140 key films (with extensive cast and technical credits, plus release details and other background information, including prizes and awards).

Wandel der Intimität

Sexualität, Liebe und Erotik in modernen Gesellschaften

Seit der »sexuellen Revolution« der siebziger Jahre ist das Thema Sexualität in aller Munde. Der Feminismus und das Coming-Out der Homosexuellen haben die tradierten Geschlechterrollen ebenso in Frage gestellt wie die sexuelle Moral. Trotzdem gelten Sex, Liebe und Erotik immer noch als ausschließlich private Bereiche. Der Wandel der Intimität, so zeigt Giddens, betrifft aber ebenso wie unsere ganz persönlichen Beziehungskrisen die Demokratie unserer modernen Gesellschaften. Dieser Wandel geht nicht etwa, wie Konservative behaupten, in die Richtung immer größerer Permissivität und ungehemmten Sex mit möglichst vielen Partnern. Vielmehr entwickeln sich unsere Liebesbeziehungen, Freundschaften und Eltern-Kind-Beziehungen hin zu mehr Partnerschaft und Gegenseitigkeit. »Demokratie«, dafür plädiert Giddens’ umfassende Analyse, ist daher nicht nur eine politische Forderung, sondern ein Schlüsselbegriff für die neue Partnerschaftlichkeit im privaten Leben.

Drifting into Sex and Parenthood without Marriage

Over half of all births to young adults in the United States now occur outside of marriage, and many are unplanned. The result is increased poverty and inequality for children. The left argues for more social support for unmarried parents; the right argues for a return to traditional marriage. In Generation Unbound, Isabel V. Sawhill offers a third approach: change "drifters" into "planners." In a well-written and accessible survey of the impact of family structure on child well-being, Sawhill contrasts "planners," who are delaying parenthood until after they marry, with "drifters," who are having unplanned children early and outside of marriage. These two distinct patterns are contributing to an emerging class divide and threatening social mobility in the United States. Sawhill draws on insights from the new field of behavioral economics, showing that it is possible, by changing the default, to move from a culture that accepts a high number of unplanned pregnancies to a culture in which adults only have children when they are ready to be a parent.

The Hidden Consequences of Cohabitation and the Strong Benefits of Marriage

Why not cohabitate? Many believe nothing is better for their future marriage than a trial period—cohabitation. It’s the fastest growing family type in the U.S. So how’s that working out? Are people truly happier? Author Glenn Stanton offers a compelling factual case that nearly every area of health and happiness is increased by marriage and decreased by cohabitation. With credible data and compassion, Stanton explores the reasons why the cohabitation trend is growing; outlines its negative outcomes for men, women, and children; and makes a case for why marriage is still the best arrangement for the flourishing of couples and society. This resource is ideal for those who are cohabitating or considering it, as well as pastors and counselors who need to be able to engage this issue.

Und es wird klar, dass Stella einen ganz eigenen Plan verfolgt. Dieser Plan hängt mit einem der bezauberndsten Orte in Amsterdam zusammen, dem Beginenhof, und mit einem Gelübde, das Stella einst getan hat. Gerry dagegen, ehemaliger Architekt, hat weitgehend abgeschlossen mit seinem Leben, in dem der Alkohol eine zu große Rolle spielt. Während ihrer Reise drängt allmählich ein Ereignis aus ihrer gemeinsamen Vergangenheit in Belfast, Nordirland, immer stärker an die Oberfläche, etwas, das ihr ganzes Leben geprägt hat. Am Ende der Reise zeigt sich, wie tief der Graben zwischen ihnen wirklich ist. Ein dichter, bewegender und aufwühlender Roman voller Lebensklugheit, Komik und Tragik.

First time in print, this series was called ""America's Favorite Gay Soap Opera"" first published in 1993 in Michael's Entertainment Weekly (later M/W) in Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD as a weekly series in print. Voted the number one favorite of the public, the series developed a near cult-like following, including spontaneous street theater enactments each Thursday afternoon when the current editions first hit the streets. The series was turned into a screen play as a epic dramatic series. The pilot was shot, but the show never aired because of the element of terrorism in the plot, and the events of September 11, 2001 killed all projects involving terrorist threat for nearly a decade. The AIDS scare sub-plot was turned into a stage play called ""A Time Below"" which received rave reviews. It gives an accurate account of the AIDS scare in the early 1980s. Now in novel form, this timeless story comes to book sellers worldwide.

The New Voices Seminar is a lively, intergenerational, and diverse group of women scholars who take an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Christianity. Under the leadership of Kathleen Dolphin, the seminar gathers annually at Saint Mary's College, Notre Dame, for collegial and collaborative conversation about women in the church and in the world. With Women, Wisdom, and Witness, readers are invited to join their conversation. This collection of essays by seminar members addresses significant contexts of contemporary women's experience: suffering and resistance, education, and the crossroads of religion and public life. Theology is brought to bear on some pressing issues in our time: poverty, sexual norms, trauma and slavery, health care, immigration, and the roles of women in academia and in the church. Readers will discover the rich socio-political, interdisciplinary, and dialogical implications of Catholic women's intellectual and social praxis in contemporary theology and ethics.

Take It from the Big Mouth

The Life of Martha Raye

"She was one of the world's four best comediennes," said Milton Berle, "but she lived a life of personal disaster." Martha Raye sang, danced, and joked her way into the spotlight of the entertainment world with a career that spanned seven decades and encompassed everything from vaudeville to television commercials to entertaining U.S. troops. Take It from the Big Mouth, the first full-fledged biography of the multi-talented performer, explores Raye's life and career with candor and insight. Raye got her big break when she caught the attention of a film director as she kidded with audience members Joe E. Lewis and Jimmy Durante during an engagement at the Trocadero in Hollywood. In the late 1930s, Raye appeared in a number of films, and the press heralded her as a "stridently funny comedienne with a Mammoth Cave mouth." From there her career soared. She landed a role in Charlie Chaplain's film Monsieur Verdoux, and the New York Post commented that Raye was the only one who could hold her own with the comic master. By the 1950s she hosted her own highly rated television show, reaching millions with her clowning. Behind the huge smile and raucous laugh, though, there was a darker side to Martha Raye. She found solace from her insecurities and a frenzied schedule in the use of drugs and alcohol. Her seven rocky marriages, the last to a man 33 years her junior whom she had known less than two weeks, fueled headlines and gossip columns. Particularly painful was her turbulent relationship with her only daughter, Melodye. She was passionately committed to entertaining troops abroad during World War II, and she worked tirelessly as both entertainer and nurse in the remote jungles of Vietnam. Bob Hope commented that "she was Florence Nightingale, Dear Abby, and the only singer who could be heard over the artillery fire." The Green Berets designated her an honorary lieutenant colonel, and she later received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. After her death in 1994, "Colonel Maggie" became the only civilian laid to rest among the Green Berets at the Fort Bragg military cemetery.
