Description

Drawing on detailed interviews with Catholic-Protestant couples in Northern Ireland, this book examines how couples marry across group boundaries in the context of violent social conflict. Challenging existing theoretical assumptions about intermarriages, Mixed and Matched looks at how deviant relationships are formed and how the wider social environment reacts to them. Contents: The Northern Irish Context; Patterns of Interreligious Courtship I; Patterns of Interreligious Courtship II; Getting Married: Rules, Decisions, and Change; Aspects of Married Life; Concluding Reflections.
