Marriages and Families: Changes, Choices and Constraints presents a comprehensive introduction to the issues families face today. The text explores important contemporary changes in the family through the lenses of the choices that are available to family members and the constraints that often limit their choices. Authors Nijole Benokraitis and Cheryl Buehler examine a variety of cross-cultural and multicultural scenarios to help you better understand the family in which you were raised as well as the families you may be forming yourself.
The 9th Edition offers coverage of contemporary topics such as adult children living at home, the impact of same-sex marriage legalization and the gray divorce revolution.
