Summary
Why do we marry? Why are some people adulterous? Why do human beings divorce? What is infatuation? When did human love and sex evolve, and what is the future of the family? In this brilliant book anthropologist Helen Fisher examines the innate aspects of sex and love and marriage, those traits and tendencies that we inherited from our past. She examines flirting behavior and the other courting postures and vocal tones we use naturally to court each other. She explains love-at-first-sight and why we fall in love with one person rather than another. She explores the brain chemistry of attraction and attachment. And she looks at divorce in 62 societies and adultery in 42 cultures to illustrate her new theory, the "four-year itch."
Fisher traces the evolution of human courtship, marriage, adultery, divorce, re-marriage, and the sexual emotions back to their origins on the grasslands of Africa four million years ago. Women, men, and power, the genesis of teenage, the origin of human conscience, gender differences in the brain, and many other aspects of human sexuality take on new meaning as she follows human kind from caves in Africa through the agricultural revolution and on into contemporary Western social life. In the last chapter, Fisher looks at several modern trends and concludes that many are not new. Instead, these family patterns came across the centuries, up from primitives who wandered out of Africa millennia ago.

Summary
The Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (glsen) aims to unite with educators in cultivating an informed citizenry and future generations of children who respect and accept all people, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. By supporting educators in their efforts to build schools where information and expression flow freely, glsen hopes to advance democratic values in classrooms across the nation. This guide provides a means for educators and parents to address questions about civil rights and sexual identity, in an open and direct way. As legislative hearings take place to determine the fate of marriage in states around the country, students will need guidance in order to integrate this complex information and to form their own opinions. This curriculum guide will help students explore the complex issues reflected in the debate on same-sex marriages. Following the lesson plans, readings are included to provide students with a fuller understanding of the many facets involved in the marriage debate. These articles include topics on: (1) meaning and purpose of marriage; (2) rights of civil marriage; (3) historical context and parallels; (4) spiritual unions; (5) influence on youth; and (6) recent decisions in Vermont and California. Also included are Appendix One, "Universal Declaration of Human Rights," and Appendix Two, "The Struggle To Legalize Same-Sex Relationships in the U.S., a Brief Timeline." (Contains 19 resources.) (Author/JDM).
