Based on a marital study in Hong Kong, this book examines changes that occur in the marital relationship today. The author concludes that as ‘affective individualism’ is used to characterize modern marriages in the West, ‘affective familism’ is a more appropriate character of marriages among the Chinese in Hong Kong.
