Stephanie Coontz is a writer, historian, teacher, researcher, a faculty member at Evergreen State College, and author of the book, The Way We Never Were.
Marriage didn't always wreck friendships among women, as it did the 1950s, or strain both beloved relationships, as often happens today. Stephanie Coontz studies the long history of family structures from forager society to the present. History has some stark (and cheering) lessons about the ways that friendship functions as a deep human bond. Plus, we're renewed, refreshed, and restored after taking a break and doing a full home reorganization.LinksWe're going on tour!Stephanie CoontzThe Way We Never Were: American Families and the Nostalgia TrapFor a Better Marriage, Act Like a Single Person
