9780030312632: Marriage, Family, and Intimate Relations

This undergraduate marriage and family text discusses the influence of society, technology and economics on the decision-making of people of varied ages, racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds. Its approach is based in history and research and explores the twin themes of marriage and family/choice and change. Explanations and graphs help students understand how sociologists think and communicate about marriage and family relations, and a special emphasis on sexual behavior as social behavior adds a current perspective to this discussion. Emphasis is given to the legal implications of marriage, incorporating subjects including violent conflict and the dysfunctional family. Full-chapter coverage of cohabitation looks realistically at couples who live together as a form of mate selection or a substitute for marriage, and Cohort Comparisons, introduced in Chapter 1 and boxed in other chapters, describe the intimate relationship experiences of four sets of people from difference twentieth-century time periods.
