Since this is a global process which affects not only individuals on the micro level, but whole populations, which nowadays face many social challenges, caused by the Second demographic transition.

The introduction of contraceptive methods and the development of medical technology have given women more freedom in the decision-making process concerning family formation and childbearing, but if this tendency continues, what effects could we expect on the society and should governments intervene in individuals’ life course choices so that we do not experience lasting negative outcomes? This and other questions are still left unanswered but should probably be included on the agenda.
