UA professor V. Spike Peterson, who is "critical of most things conventional," according to the event's Facebook page, will debunk why an institution as seemingly sweet as marriage is actually pretty sour. Peterson will also talk about the various problems marriage perpetuates, including the transmission of property and citizenship and inequality in general. The discussion is affiliated with the UA's Department of Gender and Women's Studies, International Studies, Institute for LGBT Studies and Center for Latin American Studies. 

Show up with an open mind at 5:30 p.m. tomorrow, April 20, at Revolutionary Grounds (6060 N. 4th Ave.) if you're interested in hearing about marriage from an angle we as a society don't usually talk about.
