Overview


CHOICES IN RELATIONSHIPS: INTRODUCTION TO MARRIAGE AND FAMILY, TENTH EDITION is a theme-based marriage and family textbook that supports most professors' goals by applying research and theory to students' lives, and by encouraging lively classroom discussion. Knox and Schacht accomplish this with interactive pedagogy (e.g. self assessments), current data, an engaging writing style, and by emphasizing social policy issues within the context of each chapter. The Tenth Edition includes new discussions of same-sex marriage, and features an abundance of new research. CHOICES IN RELATIONSHIPS helps students see how positive outcomes in personal relationships depend on making intelligent choices. The authors encourage students to explore the tradeoffs that choices involve, how to view situations in a positive light, and how even not making a choice is really a choice after all. Thus, students learn to approach every intimate relationship with the new freedom and new responsibility that choices involve.
