This part of the Hornbook Series analyzes the law of domestic relations and how it has changed in recent years. Discrimination against women has been mitigated. The power to control personal relationships by contract has increased. Discrimination against illegitimate children has been removed, and the old fault-based grounds for divorce have largely been replaced by non-fault grounds. The financial aspects of divorce place more emphasis on divisions of property and less on alimony. Lastly, an entirely new jurisdiction has developed out of the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act.
