(p.82) 5 Intergenerational Relationships among Stepfamilies in the UK
Families in Ageing Societies

Sarah Harper (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines grandparenting as an integral part of intergenerational relationships in stepfamilies. It argues that rather than creating a new order of relationships between generations, divorce and family change may represent solidarity with the past, whereby family solidarity is required for survival rather than a matter of free will or lifestyle choice. The care of elders, gift giving and inheritance, and relationships with ex in-laws and step in-laws are discussed.

Keywords:   stepfamilies, family relations, grandparenting, United Kingdom, elderly care, gift giving, inheritance, in-laws
