Households will move further away from the family-structure model of a stay – at – home mother, working father, and children, according to a new report from the National Opinion Research Center at the university of Chicago. Because of divorce, cohabitation and single parenthood, a majority f families rearing children in the new century will probably not include the children’s two original parents. Moreover, most household will not include children. Marriage has declined as people marry older and divorce and cohabit more.
