This is the first book to uncover the hidden body of law governing deception in dating, sex, marriage, and family life. People often assume that intimate deception is a quintessentially private phenomenon that courts and legislatures leave untouched. "Intimate Lies and the Law" reveals how the legal system pervasively regulates deception within intimacy, arguing that the law has placed too much emphasis on protecting intimate deceivers & too little importance on helping the people they deceive.
