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.
