Synopsis

Amid the current nationwide debate over what "marriage" is, this book examines anew the nature and meaning of marriage from the standpoint of what adult children of divorce have actually experienced.

Upholding the inextricable link between our personal identity and our origin in a union of two - and, more deeply, in the Fatherhood of God - the contributors to this volume reflect on the damage that divorce does to children, opening up important questions for all of us: What does it mean to be human? What does it mean to love and to marry?

After decades of talk about the rights of adults to get a divorce and the benefits for children of an amicable split between parents (a so-called "good divorce"), these authors - theologians, philosophers, political scientists, lawyers, psychologists, sociologists, and cultural critics - effectively unsettle conventional opinion.

Includes contributions by Richard Fitzgibbons, Elizabeth Kantor, Margaret Laracy, Lisa Lickona, Antonio Lopez, Ryan MacPherson, Elizabeth Marquardt, Margaret Harper McCarthy, Andrew Root, Jeanne Heffernan Schindler, Nathan Schlueter, Andrew Sodergren, Charles E. Stokes, Paul Sullins, Vicki Thorn, Maximilia Um, Gintautas Vaitoska and Amy Ziettlow
