Overview

Despite enduring whispers, sideway glances, and blatant discrimination, men and women today are choosing to remain single?and they are enjoying complete and joyful lives. In this carefully crafted, thoroughly researched book, Elyakim Kislev delivers groundbreaking insights on the fastest growing demographic in the world: singles. Happy Singlehood investigates how unmarried people create satisfying lives in a world where social structures and policies are still designed to favor married couples. The book challenges readers to rethink how people organize social and familial life in new ways. Based on hundreds of interviews and widespread quantitative analysis, Happy Singlehood investigates how singles nurture social networks, create novel living arrangements and innovative communities, develop self-sufficient lifestyles, and effectively deal with discrimination. Showcasing the voices of singles, educators, policymakers, and urban planners, Kislev charts a way forward to assist singles to live life on their terms, and explains how everyone?single or otherwise?benefits from the freedom to develop new and fulfilling lifestyles
