Review: The Superstition of Divorce by G.K. Chesterton


The Superstition of DivorceThe Superstition of Divorce by G.K. Chesterton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The original articles toward the front are typically brilliant Chesterton. The chapters he adds in addition to the original articles are good, though perhaps a bit tedious in comparison.

The thing I found primarily fascinating was less his arguments, and more the fact that he saw this as a problem 100 years ago, at a time which many of a conservative bent today look back upon as some sort of golden age. But modernity and its individualism at the expense of the family was already doing the destructive work which we now see in fuller fruition.
