The Power of the Past
The Power of the Past traces the lives of a subset of individuals – highly-educated adults who married a partner raised in a class different from their own. Drawing upon detailed interviews with spouses who revealed the inner workings of their marriages, Jessi Streib shows that crossing class lines is not easy, and that even though these couples shared bank accounts, mortgages, children, and friends, each spouse was still shaped by the class of their past, and consequently, so was their marriage.
