About this title:

Synopsis: Marriage, Civil Unions and Alternative Relationships: The Law Today in partnership with the New York City Bar offers thoughtful consideration of the rise in the number of states that recognize same-sex marriage, the decline in the number of opposite-sex couples who decide to marry, and the many forms family relationships can take today, while recognizing that marriage is still the cornerstone in the law's treatment of interpersonal relationships and is a status that is privileged above all others. This book addresses the rights and responsibilities that come with marriage and outlines the ways in which same-sex couples still lack access to many of those rights and responsibilities. It also gives strategies for structuring and protecting family relationships for people who can't or don't want to marry. Attorneys who represent individuals and families will find practical guidance on protecting their clients' interests. Same-sex couples, different-sex couples who aren't married, and other people in "nontraditional" relationships will find plain-English help to identify issues that affect their legal rights and relationships.
