*Social Safety Nets: As of February 2015, the unemployment rate was 5.4%. Children in the UK have to legally attend primary and secondary education which runs from about 5 years old until the student is 16 years old. Also medical care is offered to everyone and different kinds with varying prices based off of their income.

*Relationship between men and women: In the mid-1980s, close to half the public agreed that a man's job is to earn money; a woman's job is to look after the home and family. Just 13% agree with this now. Cuts to benefits disproportionately affect women as benefits typically make up a fifth of women's incomes, as opposed to a tenth of men. Women who work, with or without children, spend 15 hours a week on average doing chores, while men only spend five. Estimated that for each year a mother is absent from work her future wages is reduced by 5%. The men are told to be more of a expert than women are. Women are aloud to have a 39 week maternity leave while men can 2 weeks.

*The average age of marriage for both men and women is 25-29 years old.

*The average age of a woman when she has her first child is 30 to 34 years old.
*Because Great Britain is becoming more of a developed country, more women are waiting to have children because there is no need for them. Many of the women want to work and earn money more than to be a stay at home mom.
* More women should be having children, so that the kids can grow up and keep helping to expand Britain's economic system.
* Should let men have a longer maternity leave to help with the kids.
* Women and men should both have the same percent taken off their salary if absent from work.
