I learned of the phenomenon of “good enough” marriage, a term social anthropologists use to describe marriages that were less about finding the perfect match than a suitable candidate whom the family approved of for the couple to embark on adulthood together.
Seeing the disciplinary possibilities of parallel readings to this (to go deeper) and recalling the book "starter marriage" that I ironically read right after I got engaged. While the term wasn't the same, the book echoed this article as it traced a contemporary marital phenomenon that marked a generation legally, psych-emotionally, financially, etc.. Searching for starter marriage I came across this huff post starter marriage blog LIST! Seems the phenomenon isn't over.
