Pre - Industrial Families Economic system or Society that is not yet industrialized. What is a Pre - Industrial Family? There are no electronics/ technology, only human labor and animal labor Family types of pre-industrial Europe belonged into two basic groups,
the "simple household system" (the nuclear family), and the "joint family system" (the extended family) Video Time - As you can see back then families would travel on horses or carriages instead of fancy cars, buses or taxis. - Life was very simple back then and no one relied on electronics like phones or computers. They had different ways to communicate such as letters or just talking in person. - Everything was handmade such as Clothes, Blankets, shoes ect.. Because there were no malls back then. - Since there was so much manual labor, people back then were probably really fit because they would mostly walk everywhere and probably lived long too because they were healthy.
- Everything was very simple from the way there houses were and from the way they dressed and did their daily duties. Differences
- School and houses were way smaller then compared to now.
- Back then girls would wear dresses and apron like pioneers instead on jeans and tops.
- Kids would entrain themselves by playing sack races instead of going on iPods or computers Similarities
- People would play hockey back then too like they play now
- There were houses then and now too. Love and Nurturance - Marriage was a necessity not actual love for each other - Couples were committed to each other’s love and had from 1 to 2 kids
- Love was an economic necessity for both men and woman this is because a single woman had no work and a single men had no housekeepers - Couples worked side by side so they can provide their children with everything and live a good life
- Since men were in charge of their families they could treat them however they wanted to sometimes violently and sometimes nicely Addition of New Family Members •Marriage became an economic necessity, due to the fact that it was near impossible for single women to get jobs in the workforce. •Father would choose the husband for the daughter based on wealth
•Married women also had high status because of a shortage of marriageable women
Married women and their children were considered property of their husbands •Most couples now were monogamous and had fewer children because they were no longer needed for labor, housing was much smaller, and the economy was very poor.
•However, children were still a necessity because less than 50% reached adulthood.

-Woman worked as maids/servants and nannies They made small contributions and had lower wages than men Socialization of Children -By the age of 7 or 8 they began to assist in the economic activities of the family, dictated by gender -Young adults often left home to work in other families -Boys -> work on a farm or become an apprentice in trade or craft
-Girls -> household work or labor as domestic servant Physical Maintenance wives took care of the children and took care of husbands wives would cook, clean, and spent most of their time at home - self sufficient, close to one another
