Slide 10: Family as an evolving idea

A papercut, called   a “scherenschnitte,” was one way that people expressed their love in the early 19th century. The heart, representing a ring, is like true love it that it has no beginning and no end. Stephanie   Coontz writing in the Times of London, observes: “Through most of history, it was considered dangerously antisocial to be too   emotionally attached to one's spouse, because that diluted   loyalties to family, neighbors, and society at large. … When couples first began to go on honeymoons in the 19th century they   often took family and friends along for company.”
