This chapter provides an overview of the edited volume. It provides historical context for the current volume, highlighting how despite shifts in political discourse, changes in the legal landscape surrounding same-sex relationship dissolution, and a slowly growing research base on LGBTQ marriage equality, attention to LGBTQ relationship dissolution and divorce has lagged. In turn, the chapter briefly addresses the range of research, legal, and practice questions that the current volume addresses—including issues related to child custody and mediation—which are significant inasmuch as with marriage equality (may) come relationship dissolution and divorce. The chapter also names the unique aspects of the volume, including the interdisciplinary nature of the authors, the inclusion of personal narratives in the volume, and the integration of discussion questions and practical resources in each chapter. It also provides an outline of each major section of the book and the chapters within each section.
