Abstract:

"A shift in the paradigm of family – from nuclear unit to diverse constellations of intimacy – has been rapid and dramatic. Yet some norms are resistant to change, such as women’s continuing role as primary care providers despite their increased participation in the labour force. This clash of ingrained and evolving practices has an enormous impact on economic, emotional, and legal aspects of daily life. House Rules is a critical exploration of how the norms and laws that govern familial relationships are intertwined, as certain laws sustain outdated and unequal standards and policy fails to follow social developments. Basing their investigations on three sets of themes – love, money, and expectations; families, laws, and reforms; and privatization, equality, and status – the authors in this incisive collection expose the unsettled norms that affect families and households, and the role of the law in regulating them. They reveal the assumptions that create inequality and animate legislation, evaluating the effects of laws and scrutinizing reforms. Over the last few decades, the law has struggled to adjust to transformations in what typifies the structures and practices of family life. House Rules provides tools to analyze those difficulties, and ultimately to design apt laws that will respond to ongoing change and forestall the entrenchment of inequalities."--
