Example text

The scary thing about all this is that I would feel very much that if I were to go down the road [to have children] in the next five years, there are so few options, unless we moved down the country and lived in a shed, there would have to be two people in the house working. ]. But the fact is that the option isn’t there to do what my mother did, to give us a good quality of life on one salary. (Quotation from Murphy-Lawless 2005, pp. 237–8) In the 1990s, the economic context of Ireland changed radically.

The proportion of children born to unmarried parents is the highest in countries with a strong Protestant tradition and the lowest in Catholic and Greek Orthodox countries. Yet among historically Catholic countries there are notable differences between more secularized societies, such as France, the Czech Republic and Hungary, and more traditional and religious societies, such as the Mediterranean countries, Lithuania and Poland. The same distinction applies also to the frequency of extramarital cohabitation (see Inglehart, 1997; Inglehart and Baker, 2000; Sobotka, 2003).

The most commonly employed categorization of welfare states was first proposed by Gøsta Esping-Andersen (1990). He divides Western welfare states into three regimes based on the division of responsibilities of welfare production and provision between the state, markets and families. In Social Democratic welfare regimes, synonymous with Scandinavian societies, the state plays a focal role in welfare production. Basically, the aim is to enhance an individual’s independence and to ensure her welfare irrespective of her family and market position.
