Marriage Is Back

GUESTS: Peter Kramer Author, Should You Leave? (Scribner, 1997) Judith Wallerstein Author, The Good Marriage (Houghton Mifflin, 1995) If lasting relationships can go in and out of style like bell bottoms, shortskirts and saddle shoes, trend watchers say marriage is back in vogue. Whether it's a fear of AIDS, increased awareness about the effects of divorce on children or a renewed emphasis on family, there seems to be a real backlash against divorce. Join Ray Suarez for a conversation with two therapists who've spent their careers studying and thinking about how long-term relationships affect family and society...on the next Talk of the Nation, from NPR News.
