Flux, Peggy Orenstein









In Parallel Lives, her book of "high gossip" about Victorian celebrity marriages, Phyllis Rose writes that marriage is a political experience, the primary one in which most of us engage as adults "Humans invoke love at moments when we want to disguise transaction involving power," she write. " Perhaps that's what love is - the momentary or prolonged refusal to think of another person in terms of power"
Rose focused on the nineteenth century, but for today's women the nature of the power struggle is not so different.
