Identity and repartnering after separation

R. Lampard, Kay Peggs

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This book examines the lives and repartnering behaviour of formerly married people and former co-habitees, groups pivotal to recent marital change. It draws upon in-depth interviews, theories about couple relationships in contemporary western societies, theoretical ideas relating to themes such as intimacy, identity and 'risk', and detailed statistical analyses. Focusing on contemporary Britain, it examines formerly partnered people's diverse experiences of being 'single', their orientations towards past and new relationships, and their self-identities in the context of a couple-orientated society.
