Guest: Amy Harris, PhD, Professor of History, Brigham Young University, Author of “A Single View: Family Life and the Unmarried in Georgian England”  The marriage rate in America is at its lowest point in at least 150 years, with barely half of adults in the US married today. BYU history professor Amy Harris has delved deeply into the story of eight siblings in a 1700s English family and their striking singleness, despite considerable wealth, charm and success in life. The Single Sharps of Georgian England shed new light on the history of singlehood, marriage and sibling bonds.
