Lenny and Lynsey dig into the way marriage functions as a means of population control, from time immemorial up through the Dawes Act of 1887, the post–World War II push toward nuclear families and suburban living, and the expectations we live with today. Why is marriage so damn important in our culture, and why did it get that way? And how do our cohosts feel about this institution of acceptability? (Hint: Not great.)
