- OER Text MaterialsSociology: Understanding and Changing the Social World, Sections: 15.3-15.4Section 3 defines marriage and discusses trends related to the marriage in the U.S. and cross-nationally. Trends related to children are also discussed. Data from 2010 census is used. Section 4 also discusses changes in the American family and current issues related to families such as cohabitation, divorce, working mothers and daycare and same-sex marriage. The section on same sex marriage needs updated to reflect current policy. The text currently states that only five states allow same sex marriage. This is a significant short-coming of this chapter.
