Description:

The book uses legal practice as a basis to develop a theory of family law. Then it places family law more broadly within legal theory. The organization of the text and the presentation is intended to facilitate an understanding of the significance of family law to legal theory in general. Covers marriage and the relationship between family law and commercial law; informal marriage: state withdrawal or state intrusion; equality in marriage; state control over entry into an exit from marriage; children: raising the next generation; and problems caused by foreign law and our federal system.
