The Social Construction of the Divorce "Problem": Morality, Child Victims, and the Politics of Gender.
Coltrane, Scott; Adams, Michele
Family Relations, v52 n4 p363-72 Oct 2003
Although divorce rates have been stable or dropping for two decades, Americans seem anxious about the state of marriage. This article examines reasons for this collective anxiety, documenting how the divorce "problem" has been framed by organizations promoting conservative family values. Also identifies social contexts associated with cyclical claims that divorce reflects a breakdown of the moral order. (Contains 103 references.) (GCP)
