"From the Publisher:" FAMILY LIVING IN PASTORAL PERSPECTIVE SERIES LIVING ALONE This series examines major changes that occur in the life cycle of a family: leaving home, becoming married, raising children, recommitting to a relationship--or committing to a new one--and living alone.

Each book addresses major changes that ordinarily occur in the life cycle of a family. Each volume takes into account family system theory and social and economic factors that affect the family.
