Abstract

The participants' detailed accounts demonstrate how age and timing decisions can have a significant impact on the lived experience of fatherhood. The apparent continuation of a standardised trajectory for parenthood and the challenges of deviating from this have particular implications for individualisation and life course theories. The thesis provides a detailed exploration of the way in which men negotiate the timing of fatherhood, thus making a significant contribution to the literature on men's fertility decision-making.
