Abstract

Reviews Beyond (Straight and Gay) Marriage: Valuing All Families Under the Law, 2008, by Nancy D. Polikoff exploring the debate in the US on the legal recognition of non-traditional forms of family relationships and on the efforts of lesbian, gay bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) activists to achieve recognition for same-sex marriage. Comments on Polikoff's call for the special legal status of marriage to be abolished, and for increased legal rights to be acclaimed as benefits for all families rather than as symbolic victories for the LGBT community. Considers how her arguments apply to the situations in other jurisdictions.
