Virginie's presentation | The Revolution of Love in Europe & France: transition from arranged to love marriage.

What allowed the institution of arranged marriage to transform into people marrying for love in 19th century Europe & France and how did this radical change impact on children and divorce? In this presentation, Virginie will walk you through history, following the evolution of mariage from the Middle Ages until today's 21st century. This presentation is inspired by the work of French philosopher and former Education Secretary Luc Ferry.
