With roller coaster changes in marriage and divorce rates apparently leveling off in the 1980s, Andrew Cherlin feels that the time is right for an overall assessment of marital trends. His graceful and informal book surveys and explains the latest research on marriage, divorce, and remarriage since World War II.

Cherlin presents the facts about family change over the past thirty-five years and examines the reasons for the trends that emerge. He views the 1950s, when Americans were marrying and having children early and divorcing infrequently, as the aberration, and he discusses why this period was unusual. He also explores the causes and consequences of the dramatic changes since 1960―increases in divorce, remarriage, and cohabitation, decreases in fertility―that are altering the very definition of the family in our society. He concludes with a discussion of the increasing differences in the marital patterns of black and white families over the past few decades.

Book Description HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS, United States, 1993. Paperback. Condition: New. 3rd revised and enlarged ed. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Marriage, Divorce, Remarriage explores Americans ambivalence toward marriage: we continue to value it highly, but we also marry later, dissolve the marriages we make more readily, and are more reluctant to remarry than ever before. In a revision and enlargement, Andrew Cherlin examines the course of family life in America, including cohabitation, marriage, divorce and remarriage, from the end of World War II through the early 1990s. He also assesses the causes and consequences of these trends, ranging from the anomaly of the 1950s, when marriage rose, divorce declined, and couples had large families, to the rapid increase in cohabitation and single life. For this edition, Cherlin has updated all of the graphs and tables, and presented new findings on cohabitation and its relationship to marriage. He has also completely rewritten the chapter on black-white differences. It is now an essay on one of the most troubling public policy issues: the relations among race, poverty, and marriage. And in a new chapter, he explores the meaning of marriage in our society. Seller Inventory # APC9780674550827
