CANCELLED: Harry L. Munsinger, The History of Marriage and Divorce and History of Inheritance Law

This event has been cancelled and will be rescheduled.

Harry L. Munsinger is an attorney and psychologist whose practice is limited to Collaborative Divorce and Estate Planning. He has enjoyed writing almost all his life because it allows him to organize his thoughts and share them with others. His greatest joy is being with his grand children and watching them grow.

About The History of Marriage and Divorce: Everything You Need to Know:
Marriage rituals and divorce procedures have varied widely over time and across cultures. The History of Marriage and Divorce explores the evolution of these two institutions, from our early hunter-gatherer ancestors through antiquity and the middle ages up to modern times.

In this book, collaborative attorney and former psychology professor Harry L. Munsinger explains the legal, economic, religious, evolutionary, and psychological issues involved in mating and divorcing. This book will give readers insight into why humans marry, divorce, and remarry with such irrational abandon. The reader will discover that the tendency to marry and divorce are partly inherited and the personal and genetic appeal of serial monogamy.


About History of Inheritance Law: Everything You Need to Know:
Experts estimate that eighty percent of household wealth is inherited, and the average American who died in 2015 left approximately $177,000 to his or her family. Topics include:

- English laws of succession, which evolved to favor wealthy families by passing real estate and family titles to the eldest surviving son. In contrast, the American colonies developed a democratic system of inheritance where land was divided equally among all the sons.

- Goals of early inheritance laws, which were to keep ancestral lands in the family and to determine who would take the land when a father died.

- Ways American laws of succession followed English common law during the colonial period and then developed variations more suited to America's social and economic needs after the colonies won their independence from Britain.

The author also highlights how any interested party can allege a defect in the execution of a will, how trusts were developed by courts of equity to avoid the rigid rules of English common law governing legal title and use of real property, and how families can safely and effectively transfer wealth.
