A Modern Family
Family is very important in our life. Families give us a sense of belonging and a sense of tradition, families give us strength and purpose. The things we need most deeply in our lives – love, communication, respect and good relations – have their beginnings in the family.
Many single adult men and women today are waiting longer to get married. Some men and women marry and start their family life later because they want to graduate from a university or college, others want to become more established in their chosen profession.
Couples are also waiting longer before they have children. Today an average household contains only two or three people. In many families both parents work outside the home. Most families include members of just two generations: parents and their children. Nowadays people very often talk about a “generation gap’.
But there are a lot of stable and happy families. They spend a lot of time together. When problems arise, such families work together to solve them. Men and women work hard to make their families successful.
What is more important for young people to have a good career or to start family life?
How do husbands and wives share their domestic (household) chores?
