Kinneret: Actually, I do not think this is a paradox. Singlehood is usually portrayed within the confines of binaries: choosing/non-choosing; the happy/miserable single subject. But a more nuanced and political reading of singIehood pronounces that singlehood should be analyzed in intersectional terms, attuned to axes of power like gender, race, age, class and ableness. A binary discourse excludes women who often don’t have the privilege to “choose” singlehood due to various economic and social constraints. I am of course not arguing against chosen singlehood, but when we discuss this category we should bear in mind that these choices are relative and not absolute.

Kinneret: Hazan’s work has had a profound impact on my own research. Hazan separates the condition of old age from the carriers of old age, thereby freeing them of the totalizing identity of “the elderly.” And this changes the way we think of and address both the various conditions of old age, old age as a category, and old people. The same sociological sensibility is here applied to singles and singlehood.

One of the United States central values that have evolved to become less important over time is marriage. Americans in the U.S. practiced marriage more often and longer in the 1960s, where marriages involved relatively younger persons. Conversely, the rates of marriage have declined over time, with a whole repertoire of social and cultural factors accounting for most of the observed declines. Previously, cultural orientation of the American society condemned singlehood. While American condemned singlehood initially, this status is no longer frowned, and individuals tend to tend to take longer times before getting married.
