Learning and Legislating Love
In this introductory chapter, I first acquaint readers with the political and social context of healthy marriage policy and important debates over its implementation, including those about how marriage is implicated in inequality and the efficacy of relationship skills programs. Next, I introduce Thriving Families, my primary case study, and describe the methods I used to study the implementation of healthy marriage programs. I conclude with a discussion of the book’s scope and an outline of the remaining chapters.
