The Continuous Evolution of Marriage

In the wake of Obama’s new stance on same-sex marriage, Melissa Harris-Perry brings together a spirited group of panelists to challenge and discuss deeply rooted notions of marriage based on gender roles and financial and other considerations. Ultimately, they present a fresh and revealing deconstruction of the institution of marriage and the values—religious, moral and otherwise—that prop it up.
