Abstract

This paper represents a new strategy for considering the single parent family which places primary emphasis on "marital roles" rather than the traditional emphasis on "parental roles" usually found. Consideration of the significantly unique problems facing single parents and possible solutions have been secured through a perusal of the literature and direct involvement with the single-parent family phenomenon.
