about this item

For courses in Marriage and Family.


Exploring How Society Impacts Our Personal Connections in the Modern World


Marriages, Families, and Intimate Relationships explores the question: can we still find intimate relationships in our complex world? Through an examination of the influences imposed upon modern life—an unpredictable economy, globalization, computerization, the all-pervasive media, etc.—the text attempts to pass along lessons that help readers make lasting personal connections.


The Fourth Edition discusses fundamental concepts and insights across social science disciplines to answer the questions that greatly matter to Readers. They are engaged by high-interest, extremely useful information that blends the authors’ combined strengths: teaching, consulting, counseling, researching, and publishing. The text is based in research yet remains highly readable, exploring topics of great interest to readers’ personal lives such as intimacy, family, and personal happiness in the context of their distracted, visually oriented world.
