Defining Marriage Introduction

Hello friends, and thanks for subscribing to the Defining Marriage podcast. You'll get one complete and unabridged chapter every week of my book, Defining Marriage: Voices from a Forty-Year Labor of Love

This show, like the book, traces the decades-long evolution of marriage through the personal stories of those who lived through it. We'll take an intimate glimpse into the private lives of those who dreamed of marriage in the 1970s, the survivors of the 1980s, the audacious pioneers of the 1990s, the tireless soldiers of the 2000s, and the champions who won marriage today. Defining Marriage is the story of how people from all walks of life fought to change marriage -- and how fighting for marriage, in turn, changed them.

If you're the impatient type and you'd like to read the whole thing all at once, you can download a digital version over on Amazon. It's available for free during its first week in the store, July 13th to 17th, and just $9.99 after that.

This podcast audiobook version will always be free, and if you find it worthwhile, all I ask is that you give it a rating and review on the iTunes store -- that feedback makes a huge difference, and I read it all. 

Since this is the first episode, I'm going to start things off at the beginning, with the book's introduction. It's a little shorter than the rest of the chapters, but stick around afterwards for a little post-chapter discussion with me and a special guest.
