<% end %>
</erb>
+When nesting across a +has_one+ relationship you will need to create a new blank object for the nested object before calling +fields_for+ in the view.
+
+A +build_&lt;model_name&gt;+ method has been created for this purpose:
+
+<erb>
+ <% @customer.build_order unless @customer.order %>
+ <% customer_form.fields_for :orders do |order_form| %>
+</erb>
+
+Otherwise +@customer.order+ will return +nil+ and your form will fail. +has_many+ relationships do not require this extra step.
