Matrifocal Family

This kind of family is common where women have the resources to rear their children by themselves, or where men are more mobile than women.
Extended family
a family that extends beyond the nuclear/conjugal family, including grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other relatives, who all live nearby or in one household.
Blended Family
a family consisting of a couple and their children from this and all previous relationships.
Conjugal/Nuclear Family
consist of mother, father and child/children

One-Parent Households
Recent trend illustrating the changing nature of families is the rise in prevalence of single-parent or one-parent households. While somewhat more common prior to the 20th century due to the more frequent deaths of spouses, in the late 19th and early 20th century, the nuclear family became the societal norm in most Western nations. But what was the prevailing norm for much of the 20th century is no longer the actual norm, nor is it perceived as such.
Causes of the Changes in Family Systems
-changing role of women
-political, economic and social stresses
-political instability
-children witnessing adults lying
-power of media
-advances in technology
-OFW families
-personal differences
Cohabitation is an intimate relationship which includes a common living place and which exists without the benefit of legal, cultural, or religious sanction. It can be seen as an alternative form of marriage, in that, in practice, it is similar to marriage, but it does not receive the same formal recognition by religions, governments, or cultures.
The cohabiting population, although inclusive of all ages, is mainly made up of those between the ages of 25 and 34.

Same Sex-Union
While homosexuality has existed for thousands of years among both humans and other animals, formal marriages between homosexual partners is a relatively recent phenomenon. As of 2009, only two states in the United States recognized marriages between same-sex partners, Massachusetts & Iowa, where same-sex marriage was formally allowed as of May 17, 2004 and April 2009, respectively. Three additional states allow same-sex civil unions, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Vermont.

According to economist David Foot of the University of Toronto, the level of a woman's education is the most important factor in determining whether she will reproduce: the higher her level of education, the less likely she is to bear children. (Or if she does, the fewer children she is likely to have.) Overall, researchers have observed childfree couples to be more educated, and it is perhaps because of this that they are more likely to be employed in professional and management occupations, more likely for both spouses to earn relatively high incomes, and to live in urban areas. They are also less likely to be religious, subscribe to traditional gender roles, or subscribe to conventional roles.
