Resource description

The End of Marriage? argues that the order in which sex, marriage, cohabitation and childbirth occur can no longer be assumed, nor can the pattern of contributions that men and women make to the household. Indeed, maintains Jane Lewis, there is something of a vacuum which is being filled in part by an increase in negotiation at the household level. This questions the idea that individualism is necessarily selfish, which in turn raises issues regarding the regulation of the family, an increasingly delicate task for policymakers.
