While numerous couples strive for equality in their relationships, many are unaware of the insidious ways in which gender and power still affect them-from their career choices to communication patterns, child-rearing, housework, and more. Written for mental health professionals and others interested in contemporary couple relationships, this research-based book shows how couples are able to move beyond the dangers of gendered inequality and the legacy of hidden male power.
The book analyzes the relationships of couples from various racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. The contributors present innovative clinical interventions, and suggest strategies therapists can use to help couples transform their relationships from being gender-based to equality-based.

Explores these key issues:

- The risks of being in a relationship ruled by "gender legacy" behavior
- The differences between couples who get caught in gender legacy patterns and those who do not
- Gender-based patterns across the life cycle, including newly formed couples; early marriage; child-rearing; mothering and fathering
- Gendered power in couples dealing with illness; ethnic and racial differences; immigration and displacement issues
