    Introduction: "What is the New Era all about? This book argues that one of tis main features is a collision of interests between love, family and personal freedom. The nuclear family, built around gender status, is falling apart the issues of emancipation and equal rights, which no longer conveniently come to a halt outside our private lives. The result is the quite normal chaos called love."

    introduction:
    "Women and men are currently compulsively on the search for the right way to live, trying out cohabitation, divorce or contractual marriage.....One could call it the 'status struggle' which comes after the class struggle. In those countries where prosperity and social security have reached a high level, where peace and democratic rights are beginning to be taken for granted, the contradictions between family demands and personal freedom, or the daily struggle against misery and oppression."
    traditional social identities of women and men started to fade,
    "weighed down by hopes, love seems slip away because it is idolized by a society focused on the growth of the individual, and it is laden with more hopes the quicker it seems to vanish into thin air, bereft of any social ties."

    “Love has become inhospitable, and the ever higher hopes invested in it are meant to buttress it against the unpleasant reality of what seems like private betrayal. 'everything will be better next time round': this consoling cliché combines both aspects: the hopelessness and the hope, elevating both and individualizing them. All this is comical, banal, tragicomic, sometimes even tragic, full of complications and confusions- and it is what the chapters of this book seek to recount. Perhaps people have simply lost track of other issues. Perhaps, however, weighed down by expectations and frustrations, love is the new centre round which our detraditionalized life revolves. It may manifest itself as hope, betrayal, longing, jealousy - all addictions which afflict even such serious people as the Germans. This, then, is what we mean by the normal chaos of love.”
