In the public perception, financial difficulties are commonly linked with relationship breakdown. Empirical research supports this notion, with relationship breakdown implicated as both contributing to and resulting from over-indebtedness.

This chapter examines patterns of consumer borrowing, saving and over-indebtedness over the life-course,with a special focus on the formation and dissolution of intimate relationships and child-rearing.
