Marie Costa

Eumo Editorial

Co-published by Eumo Editorial

Through accounts of marital conflicts and divorces in Catalan society during the 18th and 19th centuries, Marie Costa recreates a part of our personal history and dismantles false beliefs about women’s rights and daily life. A highly readable and engaging book, the author looks back at the history of the family, feelings and sexuality. She explores how community networks were built and how social welfare works today, and highlights how marital life was a far throw from that expressed in moral and legal texts.
