Description:
Marriages and Families in the 21st Century provides an in-depth exploration of a traditional field of study using a new and engaging approach. The text covers all the important issues including parenting, divorce, aging families, balancing work and family, family violence, and gender issues using a bioecological framework that takes into account our status as both biological and social beings.
