    Overview

    The real story of love in twentieth-century Britain, told via the recollections of ordinary people who lived through the period. It is the story of an emotional revolution in which earlier, more pragmatic notions of marriage as institution were superseded by the more romantic ideal of a relationship based upon individual emotional commitment, love, sex, and personal fulfilment. And yet, as Langhamer shows, this new idea of marriage, based on a belief in thetransformative power of love and emotion, ultimately carried within it the seeds of its own destruction.
