Marriages and Families Book Description :

This textbook introduces students to the study of marriage and the family in ways to which they can easily relate. Giving equal attention to people of all racial, ethnic, and other societal groups, the author shows students that as families continue to change, they have more and more choices, but that those choices are also subject to often serious constraints on both the macro and micro level. The author's approach encourages students to think for themselves, and practical guidelines in every chapter encourage them to go beyond thought to action - to become part of the effort to resolve some of the crucial issues that confront all 21st-century families.

For one semester/quarter courses on Marriage and Families, Sociology of the Family, Human Development or Family Studies. By introducing the themes of Changes, Choices and Constraints when presenting the basic concepts, theory, research and statistics about marriages and families, Benokraitis discusses how contemporary changes in families and their structure impact the choices student's actually have, and how society can constrain their marriages, families and relationships. Through this approach, students are better able to understand what the research and statistics mean for themselves Seeing that there was a need for a text that reflected the issues- like race and ethnicity, remarriage and stepfamilies, and sexuality, that face students and their families, Professor Benokraitis wrote Marriage and Families as a way to show students both the choices and constraints that families face in modern society.
