Soc of Family–some important details!

Hi–as promised here are the section titles for the pages from Chapter 11 (violence) and Chapter 12 (divorce).

Chapter 11: read the section titled “Violence in the Media”

Chapter 12: read everything up to the section titled “consequences of divorce for spouses and children”. ONE EXCEPTION: you do need to know the differences between “his” and “her” divorce. His divorce = improved standard of living/increased personal freedom/ personal isolation. Her divorce = personal isolation/decreased standard of living. HOWEVER, even though women’s standard of living decreases after divorce, they are the ones who most often initiate a divorce.

Good luck and email if you have questions.
