Students are less likely to enter a union, especially marriage and enter into parenthood for several reasons (Mills, 2000). First, students possess fewer material resources. Second, they often have less leisure time, and finally, ‘due to their transient and uncertain position they may be less inclined to commit themselves to a long-term binding decision such as partnership or marriage’ (Mills, 2000:189). Conversely, being a student is more compatible with entering a cohabiting union due to the fact that it is less costly than a marriage, more flexible, has less legal restrictions, is easier to dissolve and has fewer normative expectations.

GLOBALIZATION AND INCREASING UNCERTAINTY Globalization is an inherently complex concept (Guillén, 2001). Yet in recent years, it has become a central point of reference for media, politicians, academics, and policy-makers to understand social change. Our concept of globalization can be summarized under four interrelated structural shifts which are affecting the life courses in modern societies during the last two decades: (1) the swift internationalization of markets after the breakdown of the East-West-Divide; (2) the rapid intensification of competition based on deregulation, privatization, and liberalization within nation states; (3) the accelerated diffusion of knowledge and the spread of global networks that are connecting all kinds of markets on the globe via new information and communication technologies (ICTs); and, (4) the rising importance of markets and their dependence on random shocks occurring somewhere on the globe.

Tariffs on trade, for instance, have been greatly reduced under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), and between member states in the European Union (EU) and via the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The consequence is that capital flows are facilitated by these types of political agreements, which have also generally liberalized financial markets (Fligstein, 1998). Some have argued that this decline of national borders undermines the authority or even heralds the fall of the nation state (Ohmae, 1990; Beck, 2000).
