My name is Molly Gordon and I am a student at California State University, Fullerton. I am a sociology major with a minor in criminal justice. I have recently gained an interest in crime analysis and behavior analysis, which is another possible route. Though I’m still figuring out details, I hope to work in the criminal justice field, possibly with youth and families. Similarly, this blog site will attempt to explore other aspects of youth, family, and marriage.


Marriage and families have become so unique in diverse in their representation. As these concepts have changed, it's important for society to be knowledgeable, understanding, and accepting of these differences. This blog will focus on different influences on the family structure, as well as influences on behaviors, beliefs, parenting and other family practices. Different theories, sociological perspectives, and real-world examples will be applied to these concepts as a way to better explain and understand these connections.
