How have single Christians been affected by the expectations of church and family? Has the silence around dating, sex and relationships been helpful or a hindrance? What have been the effects of shrinking numbers of Christians, fewer couples meeting in church and people marrying later for women who were taught to expect marriage as a natural stage of life? How can single people navigate ambiguous friendships, uneven numbers of men and women in the church, and live well no matter what their relationship status?

Vicky Walker talks to broadcaster and journalist Genelle Aldred about all these things, and her experiences growing up as a pastor's child, the stillbirth of her daughter, love and sex, compromise, career, leadership, definitions of singleness, expanding horizons and what drives relationship choices.
