About this item

This textbook examines intimate relationships, marriage, and family in the US in terms of families as dynamic and diverse; the impact of outside social, political, economic, and cultural forces; and the role of societal support in family well-being. It addresses the meaning of marriage and family; their study; variations in family life; gender; intimacy, friendship, and love; sex and sexualities; communication, power, and conflict; marriages in societal and individual perspective; singlehood and cohabitation; parenthood; marriage, work, and economics; intimate violence and sexual abuse; separation and divorce; and single-parent families, remarriages, and blended families. This edition reflects social, cultural, and familial shifts since the last edition, and it incorporates new research and statistics. It has more coverage of gender and sexuality issues and racial and ethnic diversity, discussion of the recession and its aftermath, examples on the impact of technology on family experiences, a revised self-quiz at the beginning of each chapter, new boxes, and other new or updated material.
