Marriage and the Family is an introductory course in the sociology of the family. The course takes an in-depth look at the history of the family, mate selection, love, social class characteristics and marriage, marital crises, alternative marriage forms, and human sexuality. An important thread throughout the course is the diversity expressed in modern marriage and family experiences. From this smorgasbord of possibilities students may choose or reject components with respect to their own relationships. Keep in mind, however, that these alternatives are working satisfactorily for various groups of people around the world.
