Synopsis

This edited collection explores the dramatic transformations in intimate life that have taken place in Ireland in recent years. A new multiculturalism, availability of divorce and the introduction of civil partnership for same sex couples all herald significant changes in Irish life. Divorce and solo parenthood are no longer the taboos they once were. Women participate in employment after marriage in far greater numbers than ever before. Yet certain patterns of intimate life remain entrenched. Abortions must still be obtained abroad. Lengthy separations are required before divorce can be formalised. An emphasis on traditional family forms underpins people's experiences of infertility and assisted reproduction. The contemporary landscape for intimate life in Ireland offers fascinating insights into new and old family forms, the influence of the media, and changing cultural and social norms. This edited book explores these changes in a collection of chapters by leading scholars showcasing cutting edge theory and research.
