The Ideal Home

A NSW State Archives exhibition exploring the social cultural and legal history of marriage over three centuries. Offering a collection of stories drawn from within and beyond the NSW State Archives Collection, Marriage: Love and Law is shaped by a suite of concepts that have been consistent over time: stability, suitability, respectability, equality, unity and ceremony. The exhibition is contextualised within NSW up until 1959, when the regulation of marriage switched from state to federal responsibility.
