This book explores issues related to fragile families from many different perspectives, looking particularly at the causes and consequences of this issue. Some social sciences contend that marriage is the solution to many of the problems associated with single-parent families. This book is divided into sections covering legal and theoretical perspectives, causes and consequences of offspring wellbeing, and the aspect of father's importance to "fragile families."

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Kowaleski-Jones and Wolfinger gather nine papers that discuss unmarried and single-parent families, which they collectively call ???fragile families??? ??? and in doing so expose both the science as well as a number of additional flawed assumptions that underlie the marriage agenda. ??? In considering the book as a whole, one can identify clear strengths. The collection includes a solid focus on fathers; considers differences between Caucasian and African American families; and mentions a range of other issues, such as patriarchy, domestic violence, and prevention efforts." (Richard Niolon, PsycCritiques, June, 2006)
