Tamara Metz, Untying the Knot: Marriage, the State, and the Case for Their Divorce (Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press, 2010), viii + 205 pp. In the interest of clarity, the subtitle of this book probably should have been one word longer, reading Marriage, the Liberal State, and the Case for Their Divorce. As Tamara Metz reveals fairly quickly, her case against state-sponsored marriage is premised on a set of substantive normative principles, and this both shapes her arguments and delimits their reach.
