About this product
- DescriptionAlmost all women and men claim that gender equality within their relationships is the ideal. In practice, however, equality is t predominant within many couples and families. This book develops current debates about individualisation within families - particularly how partners understand and resolve tensions between the need for togetherness and personal automy, and how partners view and work with increasing gender equality. Individualism and Families is based on a large Swedish study from two of the foremost European experts on the sociology of the family. The study looks particularly at partnering, parenting, intimacy, commitments, attitudes to finances and gender divisions of labour.
