Due to the development of same sex marriage, today different couples who belong to the same sex are coming up and forming a family through marriage. There are countries in the world that have so far legalized same sex marriage and have given such couple the green light to form a family. Subsequently, these couples are adopting children who they bring up as their own. The children are growing up knowing that these are their real parents. The family can be termed as nuclear family with two parents who are of the same sex and the children who they have adopted and who do not share blood relation with their parents or with each other.
As previously stated, the ancient marriage was a business agreement between two families to secure inheritance and family names. Thus, the planning that went into the ancient wedding ceremony had more to do with the marriage than the ceremony itself. Contrary to the modern wedding, in the Roman world, the bride’s father made all the arrangements for his daughter’s wedding. After conducting a case study on modern wedding labor, Tamara Sniezek concluded that the tasks of planning a wedding are divided unevenly and the bride-to-be finds herself performing the majority of the work (232). Furthermore, while there is no social vacuum for weddings then or now, it is common for the bride’s father (or family) to pay for the wedding ceremony today.
My uncles took jobs in different parts of the world and went on to have nuclear families. However, we all congregate at least once a year for celebrating Diwali (festival of lights) with firecrackers. This meeting is non-negotiable. It is probably one of the most exciting time of the year for me because I get to meet and chit
I did however have the experience of dealing with a step-parent. Today, twenty five percent of all American children will spend at least some time of their growing-up years in a stepfamily. This seems fine for single parents because they feel like they can start over in a new relationship and receive help from their spouse both emotionally and financially. A step-parent can cause confusion and emotional stress on the child since they have just had to adjust to only one parent and now have to adjust to a new parental figure stepping into the family role. Another factor of bringing a step-parent into a single family’s life is new step-siblings to get along with.

Still, reports prove that compared to other big retailer companies, Starbucks at least make some efforts to improve the situation. Though, the set goals were not reached, the overall fact that they were listed in the Global Responsibility Report is exemplary. The citizenship principle is much more violated by Starbucks tax avoidance in UK.
Arranged marriages are the norm; when a child reaches marriageable age, the family elders are responsible for finding a suitable mate of the appropriate caste, education level, and social stratum. The bride 's family generally provides a substantial dowry to the groom 's family, while the groom 's family furnishes a much smaller gift of clothing, jewelry, and personal items to the bride. Both families are expected to host a feast during the wedding festivities, which generally last three days. The cost of a wedding, especially to the bride 's family, is high and often puts families into debt. Typically, new daughters-in-law occupy the lowest position.
Families in the novel are included as only two males and two females in every family unit (Lowry 8).The family is to wait until a child is assigned toward them in a ceremony then have a family unit (Lowry 43). This rule applies to everyone in the society because the society is not allowed to have their own newborns, by only the birthmothers giving birth. As in contrast to the United, there are also individuals who act on their own and attempt to match waiting children, both domestically and abroad, with prospective parents, and in foreign countries provide additional services such as translation and local transport. They are commonly referred to as facilitators (Adoption in the United States). The meeting to get the new child is usually private.
It was written very clearly in the rules” (Lowry 8) This quote shows that unlike society today, the government in Jonas’s society decides when parents receive babies. In Jonas’s community, unlike our society today, elderly people are sent to the House of Old instead of remaining with their family units and becoming grandparents. When The Giver transmits a memory of Christmas to Jonas, He explains, “‘They were called Grand parents.’ ‘Grand parents?’ ‘Grandparents. It meant parents of the parents, long ago’” (Lowry 123) This quote shows that Jonas learns that families once had grandparents. In Jonas’s society, there is a limit on the size of family units while in modern society,
4. Less Individualization Portugal is distinctive that only small proportion of young children shifts away from parents when they reach adulthood. Most of the people over 30 years are still living with their parents (Guerreiro et al., 2001), and most of them separate only after marriage. Thus, the families and individuals are more collective rather than individualized. Nepal also has a similar scenario of young people living with their parents and even extended families for a very long period.
