Example text

The traditional stepfamily concerns of who holds rights and responsibilities for discipline and authority were evident in this study, with the working out of these matters influenced by the class-linked issue of whether a ‘social’ or ‘biological’ notion of parenting dominated. Ribbens McCarthy, Edwards and Gillies (2003) also debate how issues of fairness are handled in stepfamilies. While the general moral imperative that everyone in stepfamilies, especially children, should be treated ‘fairly’ was a powerful one among their respondents, how this was achieved in practice was frequently problematic.

Both of these books emphasised the extent to which family relationships, and consequently family life, were constructed by the actions of those involved rather than being simply the result of socialisation into particular family norms. They reflected the greater flexibility there was in family organisation, together with a strong emphasis on the interplay of structure and agency in generating social order. In many ways Finch and Mason’s (1993) discussion of family ‘negotiations’ and Morgan’s (1996; see also 30 Stepfamilies Morgan, 2011) focus on family ‘practices’ served to voice a fresh understanding within British sociology about the ways families operated.

We will begin by considering two papers on stepfamilies which reflect the early research agenda created around stepfamily relationships. Undoubtedly the most important early article written on stepfamilies was Andrew Cherlin’s ‘Remarriage as an incomplete institution’ published in 1978. With hindsight, this article can be seen to have encapsulated many of the key research questions which framed consequent debates around this family form within family studies. In it, Cherlin argues that in the US, and by implication elsewhere, there are few established normative guidelines available to families created through remarriage, few culturally validated ways of handling the different problems they face and little institutionalised social support for them.
