Marriage and Family in a Changing Society, 4th Ed

About The Book

James Henslin’s fourth edition of this significant book has been thoroughly revised and updated to include twenty new articles focused on the structure and develop of marriage in the modern-day society.

Marriage and Family in a Changing Society aims to follow the development of the marital life cycle from romance and dating, to marriage (and its alternatives), to parenting, and often divorce, remarriage, and widowhood.

These highly readable and deeply relevant readings allow students to see the events unfolding in their own lives from an illuminating sociological perspective.
