Using a broad range of detailed information and statistics from twenty-five countries, Rita J.

Simon and Howard Altstein explore the regulations and customs surrounding marriage and divorce from a global perspective.

Topics such as social restrictions on marriage, marriage and sexual identity, property transference, and child custody are discussed, with examples drawn from a wide range of cultures.

The second book in the Global Perspectives series, Marriage and Divorce employs both sociological and anthropological techniques to address a variety of fascinating issues about the place of marriage and divorce in modern life.

The volume serves as an interesting and valuable resource for anyone interested in these social institutions.
