The law has manoeuvred its way into most of our waking hours, and our personal lives are far from an exception. 'Love & the Law' captures just what an overlap there is between such seemingly opposite ideas. In her latest book, Australia's best known "law-for-the-layperson" author, Jan Bowen, answers all those questions which you don't want to know about but can't help asking.
Beyond guarding against lovers' quarrels, Bowen examines the rights of kids, the legal consequences of separation or divorce, contraception, sexual assault and other offences, same-sex relationships, cohabitation agreements, restraining orders, joint bank accounts and sexually transmitted debt . . . any legal issue which arises out of our family or sexual relationships is covered in an objective, clear and non-intimidatory way and illustrated with case studies.
