More and more women are shunning the institution of marriage. In fact, marriage rates have been declining for years and the percentages of never married young adults has reached a record high of 47%. With more women in the workforce, sharp increases in cohabitation, single parenthood, out of wedlock childbirth and skyrocketing divorce rates, fewer women than ever opt to tie the knot.
Timely and relevant, Don’t Say I Do! challenges the institution of marriage as the first choice for women in the postmodern era. It takes an in-depth look and provides new insights into some postmodern alternatives to traditional marriages, enabling today’s women to carve their own independent paths in the modern world. Among the old and new patterns considered:
- Unmarried single women
- Unmarried women in relationships
- Unmarried women stuck in unhappy relationships
- Unhappy married women
- Divorced women
Don’t Say I Do! reveals that the rules of the game have changed drastically; our lifestyles have loosened, become hectic and pretty much diverse. Moreover, there are plenty of opportunities as women change, grow to mingle, and get to know new partners. Intensive research from the female perspective uses real stories and targets American and European women, giving them the tools, strategies, and tips to encourage sexual, psychological and financial independence. It will inspire women to think for themselves, weigh and seriously consider alternatives for achieving satisfying, rewarding lives and reclaim their strength in a predominantly man’s world.
