This resource for those studying and working with families examines the variety of relationships among members of stepfamilies. Using a normative-adaptive perspective, the authors (both: U. of Missouri, Columbia) explore such topics as the cultural underpinnings of stepfamily relationships, couple dynamics in stepfamilies, and the effects of stepfamily living on children. The diversity and complexity of families is emphasized throughout, with coverage including gay and lesbian stepfamilies, stepfamilies of varying racial and ethnic backgrounds, and stepfamilies across the lifecourse.
