In recent decades the probability of divorce and separation among married and cohabiting couples has increased significantly in most European countries. Focusing on both economic and social aspects, this comprehensive volume explores the consequences of partnership dissolution at the individual level. The contributors use personal characteristics, properties of the partnerships and the institutional context to explain coping behaviours. The book comprises reports on eight countries, which have tentatively been classified as: 'the male breadwinner' (Belgium, Germany), 'the dual earner', (Denmark, Finland and Sweden), 'the market' (Great Britain) and 'the family model' (Spain and Greece).It also contains four cross-national comparative studies addressing the wider impacts of divorce including labour force participation, residential mobility and housing, household income, and poverty and lifestyle deprivation. Complimented by the editors' authoritative introduction, this timely study will prove invaluable to graduate students and researchers interested in the economics and sociology of the family.
