Family structure Family size How formed? Relationships between family members Roles Sexuality Quality of life Culture
Big increase in multigenerational families Brannen (2003) sees them as being like a beanpole - long and thin More contact between generations (due to divorce, smaller family size and people living longer) Compared to within generations (people don’t have or live further away from siblings/ cousins)
There is considerable diversity amongst ethnic minority families as well as families from different religions Afro Caribbean's have a high rate of female headed lone parent families Pakistani, Chinese and Bangladeshi origin families are more likely to be extended.
Socialisation of children Oakley (1974) found class to be a key factor in the division of labour in the home, middle class households are more likely to share the domestic roles Pahl (1989) found women were more likely to control the finances in working class homes
The number of homosexual families is rising. It seems inevitable that as society becomes more tolerant this trend will increase

A new theory began in the late 1970’s It see’s society as fluid and changing all the time Post modernist argue that today’s society is; Unstable, fragmented, media- saturated, defined by what we consume We now live in a global village Life involves choice and change Nothing is fixed
Post modernist believe family life is diverse, varied and unstable. They highlight how many different family forms are now accepted in society. They believe claims that one type of family is ‘better’ or ‘more natural’ or more ‘normal’ are outdated
