17. Family and Relationships

FAMILY is the basic social group, present in all societies. It should provide companionship and security, love and emotional support.
Different family structures (vary from society to society):

NUCLEAR FAMILY (úplná rodina)
This family includes two adults and their children and it is the main unit in many societies. Advantage is that they have privacy and no one argues with the parents how to raise a child. Disadvantage is that parents have less time for their children so they have to call babysitting or other relatives to come.

EXTENDED FAMILY (široká rodina)
this family includes nuclear family + grandparents and other relatives. They usually live in one house or household and the advantage is that they help each other, they save more money. Disadvantage is that they have almost no privacy and there is never quiet.

It’s a result of divorce or unmarried mothers having children or mother of child died so father need to raise a child alone. There is no advantage for anybody to raise the child alone.

STEP FAMILY (nevlastná rodina)
Step family is created by the new marriage of a single parent. There can be problems between the children and step parents they may not like each other or they could be jealous.

UNMARRIED COUPLES (svobodné páry)
Pretty common nowadays a habit is to start a family without getting married. Young people or elderly widowed couples find it economically practical to live together without marriage.

Homosexuals also live together more often nowadays as it was in the past. They sometimes share their households with the children of one partner or with adopted children.

The family composition in industrial societies has changed dramatically. Couples tend to have less children - averaging 2 (compared to 7 in 1800).
It is partly caused by the continuing changes in women´s roles:
Women have joined the labour force.
Increasing employment and education opportunities of women.
Rising expectations of personal satisfaction through marriage and family.

Some couples choose to postpone having children until their careers are well established or not to have any at all. Childless families may also be the result of the availability of birth control measures (contraception, abortion).

The divorce trend is increasing, partly due to the fact that women are economically more self-supporting and legal grounds for divorce are eased, therefore it´s easier for partners to leave a dissatisfactory relationship.
Causes of split up: unfaithfulness, infertility, interference by in-laws, financial problems, jealousy...

Possible family problems: teenage mothers, abortion, young couples, adoption, generation gap, housing.
