VII Nomos Meeting - Workshop on Marriage and Family

A Symposium on “Minimizing Marriage: Marriage, Morality, and the Law”, Oxford University Press,
by Elizabeth Brake (University of Calgary - Arizona State University)

Elizabeth Brake, in Minimizing Marriage: Marriage, Morality, and the Law, focuses on the plurality
of possible adult caring relationships by proposing a new and innovative form of marriage, namely
minimal marriage. The law should not restrict, Brake argues, the number or sex of the spouses, or
require that that the exchange of marriage rights and responsibilities be reciprocal or be
exchanged with one person. Rather, marital rights are exchanged reciprocally or asymmetrically.
Thus, minimal marriage supports the view that some legal relationships could be sexual or
economic, some non exclusive sexual relationship but just caretaking relationships between adult
family members or friends, others resemble traditional marriages or involve sharing a household
without necessarily sharing sexual intimacies. Elizabeth Brake’s notion of minimal marriage
explores a territory halfway between feminist theory and political philosophy and has implications
for issues that are relevant in both fields. The workshop aims to be an opportunity to confront
ideas and opinions between young and more experienced researchers on the topics at an
international dimension and in an interdisciplinary perspective.
