With the U.S. Supreme Court set to rule any day now on the issue of same-sex marriage, we decided to revisit an interview we did with someone who wrote the book on marriage, literally.

Stephanie Coontz  teaches history and family studies at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, and is Director of Research and Public Education for the Council on Contemporary Families.  And she wrote the book  “Marriage, A History: From Obedience to Intimacy, or How Love Conquered Marriage”.

We spoke to her last June during the height of the legal battles over same-sex marriage.

You can hear the Leon-Tailored Audio above.  The entire interview runs approximately 20 minutes.
