Relationships following Separation
This chapter will consider data about the women’s relationships following separation. Women are often deeply embedded in their relationships with family and friends. The breakup of a relationship constitutes a major event in their lives and has consequences for their other relationships. This chapter will focus on exploring the fourth research question about how family practices and relationships are constituted after a marriage breaks down. It will consider the extent to which relationships remain connected or are fragmented or reconstituted differently following separation.
