Problem

Socially ineffective family units


Experimental visualization of narrower problems
Incidence:
The nuclear family was a phenomenon of the inter-war years. It depended upon: full employment for men who (at least in theory) were paid family wages; women giving up paid employment and depending on their husbands when they had children; and tough social sanctions against illegitimacy, cohabitation and divorce. Those conditions have gone forever.
