This isn't my specialty at all, but I'd imagine a couple pieces here might be: Robert Mnookin and Kornhauser's 1979 YLJ piece about bargaining divorce settlements in the shadow of the law, and Milton Regan's Va. L. Rev piece on spousal evidentiary privileges and the meanings of marriage (I can't say what influence Regan's piece has had, but when working on our "family ties" article, I learned a lot from Regan's piece).
