Myth-busting about single people and single life

Singled Out

Singled Out on Kindle or,

order in paperback

Ever since I wrote the book Singled Out, I have been debunking myths about the supposed benefits of getting married. Every time a new study came out and got trumpeted by the media, I did what few reporters seemed to have done – I actually read the original research report. You can see collections of critiques from my blogs here:

On getting married and (not) getting happier
On getting married and (not) getting healthier
No, getting married does not mean that you will live longer
No, if you raise your kids as a single parent, your kids are not doomed
No, single people are not isolated and self-centered

The book Marriage vs. Single Life includes several important myth-debunking chapters plus 39 shorter critiques and discussions.
