Riassunto: Developing a general theory of marriage that draws on economic analysis, this book considers ways in which the supply and demand of male and female partners affects marriage, co-habitation, labour supply and divorce. The author shows how sex ratio (the relative number of men and women) affects a variety of outcomes, including the status of women in a society and the labour force participation of married women. Hours of work outside the home are also related to individual traits, such as age and education, that reflect an individual's success in the marriage market. These traits have an impact on the religion, educational level, and age of marriage partners. The author also considers such topics as co-habitation, polygamy, and the influence of marriage on work productivity.

Dal retro di copertina:

While this book contains numerous facts and empirical findings and touches on policy issues, its main contribution to the existing literature lies in the theoretical perspective it offers. The core of this book is a general equilibrium theory of labor and marriage presented in Chapter 2, which provides the conceptual framework for the rest of the chapters. Two major implications of the theory are sex ratio effects and compensating differentials in marriage. The book demonstrates how a few core concepts, linked via economic analysis, help explain a multitude of findings based on statistical analyses of data from a wide variety of cultures. It is hoped that readers of this book will improve their understanding of how marriage works to help us design better economic and social policies as well as help people live better and happier lives, making the book of interest to not only economists but sociologists and anthropologists as well.
