What counts as marriage? What’s love got to do with it? How are the married and the unmarried marked off from each other in relation to the law and to the gods? Might productive, inventive, subversive relationships and modes of being human take shape outside marriage and/or against its regulatory norms? Conjugality Unbound questions marriage as a self-evident, timeless, and unitary institution, and considers the complex negotiations of everyday intimate, economic, sexual, domestic, and procreative arrangements that occur under the sign of marriage.
