In the past few years, the way families are formed changed shape, as well the duties of each member. These changes could be due to the new international laws and new lifestyles in different nations. Does these differences leave a positive or negative impact on societies? In my opinion, I believe that they did change the way we live to the better.
Nowadays, families tend to be fewer in numbers than before where everyone in the family is now participating economically for the sake of living together. The more awareness people have now a days about over population and its negative effects, did lead them to form smaller families where all adults can work. Not to forget the more difficult life became when competition kept rising between citizens in the markets. For instance in the past years, societies were able to start businesses and find jobs easily due to the low population levels. Therefore, providing food and shelter for a larger amount of family members was not an issue. While nowadays, it requires a lot for of looking for a bachelor graduate for example to find a career. Provided that opportunities slumped, couples tend to prefer forming small families where parents and their children when grown up can find jobs for a more lenient living.
Hence, these changes did actually make the market and the people's future slightly better. When there is not much than around four members in a family, their parents can actually provide a better education for their children and way of living where those children can actually enter the market and work when they grow up unlike the past years. Taking China as an example, when they did apply a law where families can have only one child back in 2007. This law did contribute in lowering the number of unemployed citizens from 70% to to 38% in four years. Since having less people to raise and pay on alongside them being able to contribute in the family's financial condition, societies can live better and escape poverty.
To conclude, changes happened to the family's structure alongside the members' roles whether they contribute or not financially, did cause a positive impact for the family's future and the way they live. I totally believe that these changes are positive and effective.
