This 1922 essay by Jane Burr (né Rosalind Mae Guggenheim, 1882 - 1958) refers to the modern marriage as "progressive monogamy". She writes about the blessings and the damnations of matrimony yet believed that the institution has only improved since we entered an age where unions between man and woman can be easily dissolved.

"Over the civilized globe there hangs this tragedy of women and this tragedy of men -those who are free longing for bondage, those who are in bondage longing for freedom, everybody searching for the pure white flame, yet everybody compromising with sordidness that could be avoided, if only a new attitude could be legitimized."


''Progressive Monogamy'' (The English Review, 1922)
