After Happily Ever After
Directed by Kate Schermerhorn

Ninety-five percent of us marry at least once in our lifetime, and yet roughly fifty percent of all marriages end in divorce. Is marriage an outdated idea? Through interviews with couples and marriage experts, and by chronicling the demise of her own marriage, Schermerhorn poses timely, unexpected questions that can’t be easily answered with “I do.” Why do we marry? Who should be allowed to marry? What makes a marriage work or fall apart? And what viable alternatives to marriage exist, if any?
