Shared Happiness and Relational Identities Among French Grandmothers and Grandchildren

We aim to understand the dynamics between happiness and consumer identity projects by means of a qualitative search among French grandmothers and their grandchildren. Our findings show how relational identity may originate, rise and fade. We suggest that shared happiness may pervade the crafting of a particular relational identity.
