With much being said in regards to marriage and the role of the state, and the state of the institution of marriage today, this is an instructive read by one of the giants of contemporary philosophy. With his usual elegance Scruton lays out the philosophical landscape surrounding marriage and explains in clear terms just why marriage matters.
