Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of names, terms and concepts that occur in the book titled Marriage Dissolution in Singapore: Revisiting Family Values and Ideology in Marriage. While the family is a central pillar in our society fabric, there are other equally powerful social institutions which are also governed by authoritative and potent ideologies which contest the demands of the family. One such agency is the organization of paid work. Marriage and the family are often shoved to the background, to be taken care of when work is done. As a result, marital problems accumulate, and sadly, sometimes to the point where the damage to relationships is irrevocable.

Keywords: family values; gender ideology; marriage dissolution; Singapore society
