This chapter focuses on the cultural ideals of the institution of marriage and the implications of changing cultural beliefs about marriage for the domestic organization of households. It uses survey data to rank countries on the importance placed on intimacy in marriage and examines how dominant beliefs about marriage within countries are related to a less gendered division of housework between spouses.
