Abstract

The dissertation studies how individuals respond in their well-being, behavior, attitudes and preferences to changes in their personal life and in society. It consists of three chapters applying economic perspectives and methodologies in the fields of labor economics and political economy. The second chapter investigates the effects of partnership dynamics on subjective well-being. The third chapter explores the symbolic functions of marriage on the stability of formal partnerships. Both chapters are with a special focus on sexual minorities. The fourth chapter, also the last chapter, studies how economic insecurity and cultural backlash have shaped the current populist attitudes and preferences, and have triggered the populist voting behavior in the United States.
