Marriage and Family Relationships (First Edition) Description

Developed to enrich students' understanding of contemporary family structures, the anthology The Changing Nature of Marriage and Family: An Anthology on Relationships features carefully curated readings that address evolving marital styles and the effects they have on family relationships. 

The reading selections are organized into four parts. The first focuses on family planning and children including population size, mate selection, and the impact of affairs on children within the family. In the second part the readings explore the meaning of marriage, interracial marriages, and stereotypes about low-income marriages. Part 3 is devoted to historical views of marriage, comparisons of marriage, cohabitation and single lifestyles, and communication within families. The final part of the anthology addresses social and cultural issues such as the role of religious beliefs in families across generations, sexualized imagery in pop culture, and parental reactions to adolescent sexuality. 

Each article is framed by an original introduction to establish context and thoughtful questions for use in class or as writing prompts. Relatable and supportive in tone, The Changing Nature of Marriage and Family is suitable for courses in psychology, health services, education, sociology, social work, and family and consumer sciences.
