Marriage and Family

DVD - 2008
Rate this:
The video begins with Helen Mendoza and Pam Privett explaining that families can take many forms today. They are partners in a same-sex marriage, raising children of their own. This program points out that not all polygynous system marriages are cooperative. Under some circumstances, competition among wives can cause serious tensions. The terms consanguinal family, conjugal family, and fictive kin are defined and varying family forms such as nuclear family, extended family, and blended family are illustrated. The final segment of the program comments on newer adaptations of the family made possible because of advances in reproductive technology and changes in adoption laws in some countries.
