Editor Denton explains in his introduction that “enrichment calls for prevention, for helping couples and families discover their strengths and enhance these before reaching the clinical stage.” In this comprehensive volume, some of the pioneers in marriage enrichment, including David and Vera Mace, focus on the value of prevention-oriented intervention programs and methods as alternatives to psychotherapy. The history, present status, and furture directions of the marriage and family enrichment movement are reviewed. Contributors delve into such timely issues as marriage enrichment for dual-career families, leadership training for marriage and family enrichment, and strategies for developing a local marriage enrichment group. A valuable state-of-the-art resource for therapists.

Almost every reader has experienced or will experience the issues--whether it be a variant family form, a family problem, a living situation, or a roleless condition--addressed in Marriage and the Family. Contributors to this important book cover pluralistic family forms, family violence, never married persons, dual career families, the “roleless” role (widowhood), and non-marital, heterosexual cohabitation. This synthesis, when compared to today's familial and marriage situations demonstrates where we should be going in research, demonstration projects, policy change, development and implementation, and also provides an excellent overview of what life options were and are available and the costs and benefits of each.

Family life has been radically transformed over the past three decades. Half of all households are unmarried, while only a quarter of all married households have kids. A third of the nation's births are to unwed mothers, and a third of America's married men earn less than their wives. With half of all women cohabitating before they turn thirty and gay and lesbian couples settling down with increasing visibility, there couldn't be a better time for a book that tracks new conceptions of marriage and family as they are being formed. The editors of this volume explore the motivation to marry and the role of matrimony in a diverse group of men and women. They compare empirical data from several emerging family types (single, co-parent, gay and lesbian, among others) to studies of traditional nuclear families, and they consider the effect of public policy and recent economic developments on the practice of marriage and the stabilization or destabilization of family. Approaching this topic from a variety of perspectives, including historical, cross-cultural, gendered, demographic, socio-biological, and social-psychological viewpoints, the editors highlight the complexity of the modern American family and the growing indeterminacy of its boundaries. Refusing to adhere to any one position, the editors provide an unbiased account of contemporary marriage and family.
