With the rising rates in divorce, it appears that the married two-parent family is becoming a thing of the past.
Celebrity mom Reagan Gomez writes in a blog post on GlobalGrind:
“Now, the old school definition of a Family includes a mom and dad. However, with the times being what they are, most are forced to make due with one parent in the home. But a lot of the time, the kids are fine. Happy. After all, a family is what you make of it, and if your relationship crumbles, life goes on, right? Children still need to be raised. So, if the kids are happy, what’s the problem? Well, let’s do a little experiment. Name 10 black, happily married couples, under 35. Now name 10 people you know, under 35 that are single parents, and have never been married. Which group do you know more of? For me, yes I’ve been married for a while, but I only know of ONE other black married couple in my circle. But single parents…I know lots of those. Problem? I’m not sure….”
So, Is the married two-parent family a thing of the past?
