    Just out of curiosity: is UKZN Press considering a second installment, to add the other half of most of the romantic equations, namely 'the men'? Would be interesting to hear/see/read their points of view.
    As far as I can see, many of modern day relationships in Africa and beyond are highly 'monetised', meaning: an exchange of services first and foremost. Maybe it has been like that all through history; that's hard to say.
    The concept of 'romance' as the foundation stone of relationships is relatively new all over the globe, and gets fueled with nearly every movie coming out of Hollywood. Getting married in white, for example, wasn't traditional at all until about a century ago.

    Anyway, I'm most curious: is there a second installment? Or is this one 'it'?

    Aernout, as far as I'm aware the book doesn't exclude men's voices and situations. In this particular case, the video in the post concentrates on women - but it was produced separately from the book, and not by UKZN Press. The book and video simply share a similar theme, which is why the video would be of interest to the book's readers.
