Happy Singlehood charts a way forward for singles to live life on their terms, and shows how everyone-single or coupled-can benefit from accepting solo living. Based on personal interviews, quantitative analysis, and extensive review of singles' writings and literature, author Elyakim Kislev uncovers groundbreaking insights on how unmarried people create satisfying lives in a world where social structures and policies are still designed to favor marriage.

In this carefully crafted book, Kislev investigates how singles nurture social networks, create innovative communities, and effectively deal with discrimination. Happy Singlehood challenges readers to rethink how single people organize social and familial ties in new ways, and illuminates how educators, policymakers, and urban planners should cater to their needs.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Happy Singlehood thoughtfully explores the unacknowledged increase in single living. Its serious consideration could result in greater freedom of choice, happier individuals, and more efficient economies." * Foreword Reviews *
"Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals; general readers." * CHOICE *
"The book...is not just for academic types. Anyone interested in a smart, thoughtful, unconventional take on single life will find a lot to like in Happy Singlehood. Kislev treats readers to the kinds of approaches we have come to expect from the most successful nonfiction trade books, including, for example, illustrating his points with stories from the single people he interviewed as well as anecdotes from his own life." * PsychCentral *
"In this well-sourced and researched book, Kislev thoroughly explains the growing popularity of the `single by choice' phenomenon, providing real-life examples culled from interviews and blogs with singles." * Jerusalem Post *
