在社会中，在传统社区的反面，人们彼此面对面地认识，个人往往有更多的机会去处理偶然的爱情。由于在亲密领域的多样性，现在广泛认识和探索（荷斯坦，2003）。个性化已成为在晚期现代性社会变迁理论的核心概念，这种多样性被解释的一种方法（Beck &格恩斯海姆，1995）。这一解释涉及个人在亲密关系领域内进行“自由”选择，例如，选择同居，选择结婚，选择同居前“测试”婚姻关系。年轻女性的理论家如Beck和Beck Gernsheim举行（2003）是在对内的亲密关系，这样的选择和随后的多样性转变的最前沿，由于增加教育和随后的职业机会提供给他们，而他们从传统的性别角色在与男性的亲密关系。年轻的女人都没有，但是，一个单一的范畴，而是分享的差异和不平等，包括在他们的教育和就业机会方面，从而提高关于是否以及如何年轻妇女在这样的分化可能做这样亲密的关系不同的问题。社会学家进行了实证研究的基础上采访了30名年轻女性，旨在解决这些问题。威尔莫特（2007）认为他们不同的路线，通过教育和就业岗位。在不同的环境中的年轻女性将提供一个有益的和多样化的话语的浪漫和反对话语的偶然性。
In the society, in the opposite side of the traditional community, people know each other face to face, individual tend to have more odds to deal with the contingency love. As diversity in the sphere of intimacy is now widely recognized and explored (Holstein, 2003). Individualization has become a central concept in theories of social change in late modernity and is one way in which such diversity has been explained (Beck & Gernsheim, 1995). This explanation involves individuals exercising ‘free’ choice within the sphere of intimacy, for example, choosing to live together, choosing to marry, choosing to live together to ‘test’ a relationship prior to marriage. Young women are held by theorists such as Beck and Beck-Gernsheim (2003) to be at the forefront of the shift towards such choice and subsequent diversity within intimate relationships, due to the increased educational and subsequent occupational opportunities available to them, which free them from traditional gender roles within intimate relationships with men. Young women are not, however, a unitary category, but rather share differences and inequalities, including in terms of their education and employment opportunities, thus raising questions concerning whether and how young women differentiated in this way might ‘do’ such intimate relationships differently. Sociologists thus conducted an empirical study based on interviews with 30 young women, designed to address such questions. Willmot (2007) argued that their different routes through education and employment position. The young women in different settings will provide a conducive and diverse discourse of romance and an opposing discourse of contingency.
