The fourth edition of this highly acclaimed text has been fully updated to reflect contemporary issues in marriage and the family. In addition, it has been reorganized and streamlined to facilitate ease of classroom use. First, the authors present comparative and historical perspectives on the family. Next, they examine how social class and ethnicity influence modern families. The complex issues of love, sex, marriage, contraception, and childbearing are fully explored. Family realities such as housework, power, marital satisfaction, relationships between parents and children, and family violence are then analyzed. Finally, family changes such as divorce and remarriage and life transitions are presented.
