This is the first comprehensive and interdisciplinary volume on divorce and relationship dissolution among LGBTQ people. With the goal of informing policy, practice, and future research, the volume gathers and expands current knowledge on: LGBTQ people’s relationship and dissolution patterns, the divorce and child custody rules and processes that now apply to many LGBTQ families, and the surrounding political and cultural environment in the United States. Among the fascinating lines of inquiry explored are: What factors contribute to relationship stability and well-being among LGBTQ people, and what factors lead to instability and strife? How do stigma and prejudice impact LGBTQ relationships in terms of risk of, or resilience against, dissolution? How does access to the legal institution of marriage and parenthood impact same-sex couples’ stability? What unique issues do LGBTQ people who are separating or divorcing face in the context of navigating custody of their children? What are the unique dissolution issues for transgender people, LGBTQ people leaving previous heterosexual relationships, and those whose relationships end due to the death of a partner? How do gender, race/ethnicity, immigration status, economic status, and other characteristics intersect with such issues? How can therapists and lawyers sensitively and effectively assist LGBTQ people who are experiencing relationship dissolution and its aftermath? This book attends to the empirical, demographic, personal, and legal experiences of LGBTQ individuals experiencing divorce and dissolution, and is an exciting resource for scholars, students, and practitioners in a wide range of fields, including law, psychology, social work, sociology, and political science.
