"This book is a carefully researched, clearly written, very important contribution to our understanding of divorce." —Arlie Hochschild, University of California, USA

"This rich, evidence-informed narrative provides a frank, "up close and personal' portrait of the aftermath of marriage dissolution." — Mary Corcoran, Maynooth University, Ireland

"Moore throws a welcome light on the moral identities and gendered inequalities of parenting after separation." — Rosalind Edwards, University of Southampton, UK

This book focuses on parental commitment to family life after divorce, in contrast to its common perception as an irrevocable breaking up of the family unit, which is often perpetuated by representations from popular culture and the media. In the first detailed review of emotions and emotion work undertaken by divorced parents, the author sheds light on how parents manage feelings of guilt, fear, on-going anger and everyday unhappiness in the course of family life post-divorce. Moore demonstrates how the emotional dimension of divorce is shaped by societal and structural factors and requires parents to undertake considerable emotion work in the creation of new moral identities. The book points to the often gendered responsibilities for sustaining family lives post separation, and how these reflect extensive inequalities in family practices. The author concludes that divorce is not dangerous for society; it is not a social evil or a demonstration of the rise of selfish individualism, and that divorcees remain committed to former partners and children long after divorce.

This book will be of interest to scholars and students in the areas of Sociology, Psychology, Family Studies, Social Policy, Social Work and Law.


The primary aim of the study was to demonstrate that the emotional connectedness of marriage and parenting is not terminated by divorce and continues for many years afterward. ... this book does afford a needed balance to the overemphasis of divorce research on its effects upon children. And the categories she has devised can provide researchers a suggestive scheme for additional studies in this domain. (David Elkind, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 62 (24), June, 2017)
