Single, No Children: Who Is Your Family? (Paperback)
The latest book from renowned singles expert Bella DePaulo includes new writings as well as articles previously published in Time magazine, Quartz, and a scholarly volume: 1.Welcome to Bigger, Broader Ways of Thinking about Families 2.How Our Families Became So Much More Than Just Mom, Dad, and the Kids 3.Innovative Families and Innovative Ways of Living 4.Why Do People Get Angry at Women Who Stay Single and Don't Have Kids? 5.Single, No Children: Who Is Your Family? While many might be tempted to dismiss single people with no children as having no family at all, Professor DePaulo has never been one to put up with that sort of marginalizing of people who are single. She instead provides a powerful case for the outsized role of single people in holding families together, creating new kinds of families, and coming up with innovative ways to live.
