Feminist Challenges to the New Familialism: Lifestyle Experimentation and the Freedom of Intimate Association

Hypatia 11 (1):135 - 154 (1996)
The new familialists argue that the decline of the intact two-parent family is responsible for our most pressing social problems and advocate public policies designed to promote family stability and discourage divorce and nonmarital births. This essay defends the freedom of intimate association and argue that family stability, while an important good, must be balanced with other goods such as equality and justice within the family, happiness, and individual self-development
