      VII Nomos Meeting - Workshop on Marriage and Family


      A Symposium on "Minimizing Marriage: Marriage, Morality, and the
      Law", Oxford University Press,
      2012 by Elizabeth Brake (University of Calgary - Arizona State
      University)
      Elizabeth Brake, in Minimizing Marriage: Marriage, Morality, and the
      Law, focuses on the plurality
      of possible adult caring relationships by proposing a new and innovative
      form of marriage, namely
      minimal marriage. The law should not restrict, Brake argues, the number
      or sex of the spouses, or
      require that that the exchange of marriage rights and responsibilities
      be reciprocal or be
      exchanged with one person. Rather, marital rights are exchanged
      reciprocally or asymmetrically.
      Thus, minimal marriage supports the view that some legal relationships
      could be sexual or
      economic, some non exclusive sexual relationship but just caretaking
      relationships between adult
      family members or friends, others resemble traditional marriages or
      involve sharing a household
      without necessarily sharing sexual intimacies. Elizabeth Brake's
      notion of minimal marriage
      explores a territory halfway between feminist theory and political
      philosophy and has implications
      for issues that are relevant in both fields. The workshop aims to be an
      opportunity to confront
      ideas and opinions between young and more experienced researchers on the
      topics at an
      international dimension and in an interdisciplinary perspective.
