Update to Marriage and Other Arrangements


In the spring of 2013, marriage made headline news with the US Supreme Court rulings on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California's Proposition 8. AAA and several anthropologists weighed in on the issue with a press release, several op-eds and an important chapter in a newly released book. The information, ideas and insights in these publications offer a wonderful, up-to-date complement to the themes and articles in the first issue of Open Anthropology on "Marriage and Other Arrangements."
