A desire for children and starting a family amongst women and men with university degrees
The study investigates the attitude and motivation of women and men with university degrees regarding starting a family. Women and men in Eastern and Western Germany are having fewer children than they would like. Women with a university degree in particular are have their first child very late or they remain childless because of reconciliation problems.
Work and a desire for children, contraception and family planning, reconciliation problems and deferring starting a family: are these all women’s issues? At least in public discourse and research it still looks that way. “Men’s lives” is one of the still rather rare studies investigating the role of men in matters relating to family planning and starting a family. 1,500 men aged between 25 and 54 were interviewed.
