Herbert George Wells was an English writer. He was prolific in many genres, writing dozens of novels, short stories, and works of social commentary, but he is now best remembered for his science fiction novels. "Marriage" is a novel, which features two protagonists: Marjorie Pope, the oldest daughter of a carriage manufacturer and R.A.G. Trafford, a physicist specializing in crystallography whom she marries against the wishes of her family. The novel traces the history of their relationship, which begins when an early airplane Trafford is piloting crashes into the garden of a house Marjorie's family is renting for the summer.
