Couple Relationships in the 21st Century

Jacqui Gabb, Janet Fink

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book presents an incisive and engaging account of love, intimacy and personal life in contemporary Western society. It draws on rich qualitative and large-scale survey data to explore the ordinary and often mundane relationship work that goes into sustaining a relationship over time. Looking through the lens of relationship practices, the authors argue there is no 'normal couple': couples are what couples do.
