“Last Comes Marriage”

I start a series for Acculturated, by reviewing Promises I Can Keep: Why Poor Women Put Motherhood Before Marriage. There’s much more in the book than I had a chance to cover in this piece, but I hope it will inspire more people to read it. Also, this piece obviously picks up some of the themes of my “hedonist, disciple or bourgeois?” post, so if you’re following that discussion you might check it out.
