Marriage can be a personal expression of love and commitment between two people. But it’s also a contract with the government, one that affords certain privileges. On this edition, we take a look at how government is trying to increase marriage regulation: preventing same sex marriages on the one hand, and on the other, promoting marriage as an economic solution for low-income women.
This week’s host: Aimee Pomerleau. Contributing producers: Steven Valentino, with Karina Muñiz, Sarah Olson and Renita Pitts of the Welfare Radio Collaborative.
