Men Mateship Marriage
MEN MATESHIP MARRIAGE cuts through the feminist vs men's movement debate by showing that men and women can construct their lives together based on cooperation and mutual support. Drawing on large-scale research studies on marriage and the family, MEN MATESHIP MARRIAGE finds that for most men their 'best mate' is usually their wife and that the family is, contrary to popular rumour, not disintegrating. This book also answers the question - now that the average Aussie bloke is more likely to be found spending time with his family than down at the pub drinking beer with the boys, has the Aussie Ocker gone forever? A quiet celebration of the virtues of male-female mateship, this book shows us that by transforming our relationships we have the power to transform society itself.
