I do - marriage and commitment in singleton society, 2002 Conversations in Print
Series, published by Institute of Ideas, featuring an essay by Jennie Bristow
and a range of contributors responding including Fay Weldon, Mary Kenny, Yvonne
Roberts and Helen Wilkinson.
Marriage as an institution has been
in decline for decades, but even unmarried cohabitation now seems to be on the
wane. Is the 'singleton society' simply a result of greater freedom, or does the
reluctance to commit indicate a deeper malaise?
"The inner and external
conflict being experienced by individuals and couples today - when it comes to
giving in to passion and commitment - is the creative energy from which marriage
will once again become 'hot' in a climate that appears lukewarm or cool to the
idea of marriage and commitment."
