Coontz continues: “But as modern economic and political trends eroded traditional dependencies on neighbors and local institutions, people began to focus more of their emotions on love and marriage.

In the postwar ‘Golden Age of Marriage’ people began expecting their spouse to meet more and more of their needs.”
