The Future of Relationships

BY MARK VELLA
@ VOL 50 ON SEP 04, 2018

Almost half of South Africa’s children grow up fatherless, fewer people marry and there are more divorces than ever before. Noting the model of human relationships as failing, Mark proposes a ‘new normal’ and ways to better navigate and support human relationships. From multiple perspectives he reframes the human relationship cycle from dating to marriage, and from parenting to co-parenting.
