Gegenstandsbereich: Singlehood

"those unmarried individuals who do not cohabit with an intimate partner, although they may share a residence with a friend, children, or relatives, and may have a more or less stable intimate relationship with someone living elsewhere (...). Furthermore, we limit this chapter primarily to heterosexual singles (...). We also refrain from paying particular attention to older singles (...). Finally, the issue of single-parent families is (...) not dealt with specifically in this book, although many of the issues discussed here apply to single parents as well." (S.22f.)
