Must bring this up in the tutorial group – what is the best way to deal with these situations – what should you say or do. Why did Miss X never marry? What proportion of the population remain unmarried? What influence has the unmarried state on health? We were surprised at how profoundly this elderly lady still missed her mother Useful discussion in tutorial group about loneliness and also about changing composition of society and extended family. See if we can get answers to how many people do not marry etc. from census data Example of a student learning log
