Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Choices in Relationships, 13e!

Cutting edge and student-friendly, Choices in Relationships takes readers through the lifespan of relationships, marriages, and families, emphasizing research-based information that will help them make deliberate, informed choices in their interpersonal relationships. Authors David Knox, Caroline Schacht, and new co-author I. Joyce Chang draw on extensive research to challenge students to think critically about the choice-making process, consider the consequences involved with choices, view situations in a positive light, and understand that not making a choice is a choice after all. The extensively revised Thirteenth Edition reflects the rapidly changing world with over 700 new research citations, a new technology feature exploring its effect on relationships and choices, new and increased coverage of single and LGBTQIA individuals, an emphasis on cultural diversity and inclusiveness, and more.

This site features an array of free resources you can access anytime, anywhere.
