The Marriage and Its Tensions

The Marriage and Its Tensions

(p.145) 4. The Marriage and Its Tensions
Learned Hand

Gerald Gunther

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on Learned Hand's family life. Between 1905 and 1909, the Hands' three daughters were born—Mary Deshon in 1905, Frances in 1907, and Constance in 1909. The private family life was not tranquil—and this was not just because of the turbulence of child rearing. Learned experienced recurrent anxieties about health—his own and that of his family. Not only did he have to battle a serious illness, but the joys of having three children in the span of five years were diminished by his irrepressible capacity to fret—about his wife's stamina, about family planning and birth-control methods, and about his daughters' nutrition and health.
