Loved, loved, loved this book. Like other reviewers, I feel like someone has finally, academically clarified what has fundamentally bothered me about the LGBT movement's focus on Marriage as the solution to all of our problems. The problem is not simply that gays are denied marriage. The problem is that the law provides special rights to married couples at the expense of all the diverse family forms sustaining each other in today's society.
