Joslin: "The Evolution of the American Family"

Courtney Joslin (UC Davis School of Law) has posted "The Evolution of the American Family" on SSRN.  Here is the abstract.

This short piece examines the changing meaning of marriage and the family in the U.S. Among other developments, the piece chronicles: the changing role and legal status of women in marriage; race restrictions in marriage; the legal recognition of same-sex relationships; and the increasing numbers of nonmarital families. The article is the lead piece in the Summer 2009 issue of the ABA Human Rights magazine devoted to the New American Family.
