A journey into our modern-day desires to wed traditionally and, at the same time, break with tradition through divorce and cohabitation offers an examination of how we wed today, find true love, and how we choose a china pattern and provides a close-up look at familiar wedding customs.

Norton Pub
In this modern age, why do we carry on that most traditional of all traditions: marriage? When Kate Cohen decided to marry her longtime boyfriend, it seemed like a natural choice. But why? In an age of widespread cohabitation and divorcewhen marriage is no longer the master key to sex, a shared home, or securitywhat reasons did she have for marrying? With charm and honesty, A Walk Down the Aisle addresses our desires to wed traditionally, and also to break with tradition. Illuminating familiar wedding customs by showing us those from other cultures and eras, and enlisting the ideas of figures from John Milton to Lyle Lovett, Cohen looks at how we wed today, how we find a true love, or how we find a china pattern. We join her during the summer before she walked down the aisle, and with her we face the questions her restless mind encounteredincluding the most troubling and, finally, exhilarating ones: What does that walk mean? And why does it feel so right?
