Intimate associations : the law and culture of American families / J. Herbie DiFonzo and Ruth C. Stern.

Location: lax
Call #: KF505 .D54 2013
Publisher:


The rise in divorce, cohabitation, single parenthood and same-sex partnerships along with an increase in surrogacy, adoption and assisted reproductive technologies has led to many diverse configurations of families, or intimate associations. The authors show that children of married parents fare better than children in a household formed by cohabiting adults. This is not to condemn non-traditional families but to point out that society and the law do not adequately provide for their needs. In conclusion, they call for a legal system that can adapt to the continually changing reality of family life. Find out more (catalog link)
