Most people were married by 25 and got married in church. Most Households contained a husband, wife and children. In pairs identify in a list, the way modern society appears different.
Attitudes Today Today: Most people have sex before marriage. The average age for first sex is younger, according to the National Survey of Sexual Attitudes it is 16. The extended family is becoming more popular, as mothers are in paid employment and use grandparents to look after children. The Civil Partnership Act of 2004 created a new legal status for gay couples. This is where same sex couples can form a union that gives them the same as rights as a heterosexual married couple.
