SECTION 4 - Read the passage and answer the questions (1 point each)
Some societies have nuclear families in which the mother, father and their children live together in the same house.
Other societies have extended families. In this kind of family, the nuclear family lives together with grandparents, uncles and other relatives.
In North American society, the nuclear family has been the traditional form of the family. Today, however, it is more of an ideal than a
reality. Although there has always been variety in the “traditional” North American family, there seems to be even more diversity today.
According to the most recent government reports, only about one third of all North American families are traditional with two
parents and their children, and another third are married couples with no children or no children still living at home. The final third are single
people, mostly women over sixty-five years old. There are also unmarried couples living together and single parents.
There are a number of reasons why the Western family is changing. One reason is that the size of the family is getting smaller.
Now more women are working, and they delay having children. Having fewer children allows a family to give more to a few children, so they
will have better lives. A smaller family can also move more easily to places where they can make more money. Moreover, there are more babies
born to unmarried women as well as more divorces. Some young couples don’t see their parents very often, and they don’t invite their parents
to live with them when the parents grow old. In fact, many of the parents don’t want to live with their grown children. Finally, many North
Americans have close friends who are like family. These friends play an important role in family life.
