program date: 
Fri, 12/30/2011

Recent years have seen an explosion of male joblessness and a steep decline in men’s life prospects that have disrupted the “romantic market” in ways that narrow a marriage-minded woman’s options. Yet, this state of affairs also presents an opportunity: as the economy evolves, it’s time to embrace new ideas about romance and family—and to acknowledge the end of “traditional” marriage as society’s highest ideal.

That's a broad view from Kate Bolick's recent cover story in The Atlantic, 'All the Single Ladies' which Andrew Geller elaborated on when he spoke with her this morning.
