Marriage and family
Socities are formed by marriages and families and these two are the key structures of a society. The connection of family and marriage is becoming complex in an American society. While, marriage is defined as a legall social contract between two peoples,traditional based on physical relationships. But American society has tramsformed drastically and the definition of marriage needs to be revised. Family is defines as a gropu that is socially defined based on blood relation, adoption or marriage and the U.S. Census Bureau also agrees with this defition of “family” ( OpenStax, 2017).
Cohabitaion is sharing the same residence by a couple without marriage and is terending intodays world.Cohapitaion is an option chose by many couples who want to understand each other before intering into marriage. It is appropriate for couples living in an American society to cohabilitae before marriage because people in America donot keep marriage at the top and they always want to settle down and understand each other more. So in that cultural setup cohabilitaion is a good option. Cohabiliation gives couple enough time to accept each other flaws and it encourages them to fight together for their welbings. If the ended up marrying eachother then it will be a stronger nad happier marriage. In a recently held servey 39 percent respondent answered with a “yes” when asked where marriage is outdating or not. According to a Census reported in 2010, only 66 percent of children live woth two married people and this number has decreed from 77 percent in 1980s census. While cohabitation is increasing in an American society. It has increased by 13 percent sinne 2009. 38 percent believes it negatively impact society and the rests are positive abouit it
( OpenStax, 2017). Many couple understand cohabitation as a trial run for future marriage and it is not surprising at all because socities change and people need to coup with the changing sorroundings. Cohabitaion gives time to save more money and it lets you spend more time togethere before marriage and in an American society time and miney are two important things so this research helped to made my mind for cohabitation.
My question from my class mate is that, if cohabiliation is accepted by 90 percent of Americans then what would be the reaction of immigrant that want to live in America?
