Rocznik: 2007 Tom: 13 Numer: 2
The research was carried out in 2006 in Nowa Huta district of Kraków. People who are not in a permanent relationship – singles and people living in constant married relationship were examined. The sample of 100 individuals aged 32–36 was taken into account. Rokeach Value Survey was used to determine the preferred final values by the singles and by the married people. Crumbaugh and Maholick Purpose in Life Test was used to determine the structure of the life purpose of the examined people. The beauty of the world, the beauty of the art and making provisions for the family existence are more important for the singles, whereas the people who are in constant married relationships think more highly of true friendship, self respect and health i.e. physical fitness and mental ability. The people living in a constant married relationship are characterised by a higher sense of life purpose than the singles.
