Marriage has become an increasingly important topic in academic and policy research. A burgeoning literature suggests that marriage has a wide range of benefits, including improvements in individuals’ economic well-being and mental and physical health, as well as the well-being of their children. Inspired, in part, by these potential benefits of marriage, several large-scale federal initiatives have been launched in recent years that aim to encourage and support marriage. In general, married people are healthier than those who are not married across a wide array of health outcomes. This new and important book gathers the latest research from around the globe on marital quality and relationship narratives, domestic violence, marital conflict and child maladjustment, trauma and transitions in the marital relationship and other related topics.
