To Have And To HOLD: A History of Marriage

Development of a documentary series on the history of marriage in the United States.

A new series of 5 hour-long documentaries in development for PBS that will tell the story of marriage in the United States, and how changes in this foundational institution have impacted everyone and everything, in particular the role of women. A HISTORY OF MARRIAGE will be presented in linear chronology, focusing on the macro shifts that have occurred in the definition and structure of marriage from pre-colonial times to the present — including major legal, legislative and policy shifts, as well as public opinion cataclysms and changes in social currents, collective thinking and behavior. In addition, we will present biographical profiles of the changemakers and innovators that have influenced different perspectives and possibilities within the religious, cultural, social and economic dynamics of marriage.
