Relational Rights and Responsibilities: Revisioning the Family in Liberal Political Theory and Law

Hypatia 11 (1):4 - 29 (1996)
Abstract
This article discusses three main orientations in recent works of legal and political theory about the family-contract-based, community-based, and rights-based-and argues that none of these takes adequate account of two paradoxical features of family life and of the family's relationship to the state. A coherent political and legal theory of the family in the contemporary United States requires recognition of the relational rights and responsibilities intrinsic to family life
