The New(er) family in Australia and New Zealand

definitions, rights and responsibilities

Rosalind F. Croucher, Francesca Dominello

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The extent to which marriage and de facto relationships have been perceived and treated identically has varied from jurisdiction to jurisdiction within Australia and New Zealand. As we reassess the zones of responsible action in a society, so too do we reassess what 'family' and what 'property' are - for they are the meeting points of responsibility.
