What purpose has the institution served across the centuries? How do proposals, ceremonies, and expectations of marriage differ across cultures? What can couples do to ensure a strong marriage, and what happens if they can't make it work? See how answers to these questions have changed across the centuries, and hear what long-term married couples have to say about the secret to their success.
