The Reconstituted Family: A Study of Remarried Couples and Their Children

Front Cover
Nelson-Hall, Jan 1, 1975 - Family & Relationships - 181 pages
This study of remarried men and women who have children from previous marriages arose out of personal interest and experience. Not every facet can be covered in any one study. I have tried to deal with what I consider to be the most important aspects of the reconstituted family. Some of the information came from people I interviewed; some came from insights I gained beyond the answers to my straightforward questions. Information also came from my own life experience and from informal observations. I have tried to put the information from these sources together in a coherent manner as to present a picture of how remarried people and their children constitute (or fail to constitute) a family.
