The diverse and emergent forms of relationships, increasingly evident in today's society, are the focus of this volume.

Outstanding researchers discuss relationships that are often overlooked in the literature, including: lesbian and gay; cultural minority; long-lasting marriages; non-marital cohabitation; long-distance; friendships developed through computer networks; and work relationships which are simultaneously hierarchical and friendly.
