Subjects: FAMILY LAW

Contains essays about the basic meaning and principles underlying legal regulation of marriage and other relationships, written by a dozen prominent legal scholars from five nations, including authorities on jurisprudence and family law and scholars of other relevant disciplines. Topics include the principles used to determine eligibility for particular legal and social recognition; the current status of such relationships in society and law; how such relationships may affect one another; the foundations for public recognition of relationships; and critical analysis of various legal theories that would level such relationships. All chapters consider various relationship forms in the light of basic jurisprudential and social principles. The essays elevate the dialogue about the marriage law and law reform to a new, higher level of discourse.
