We may be able to create more healthy marriages in the future, but we can never again assume that all dependents, young or old, will be taken care of within first-marriage nuclear families. Even married-couple families face new challenges. The male-breadwinner family is no longer the norm.
Another cause, researchers are finding, is that couples tend to fall into traditional gender roles after the birth of a child, which can produce resentment in both parents. This failure to change enough is not simply an individual problem but a deeply institutional problem as well.
Study: Men in Germany Are Scared to Start Families
Indeed, as individuals, many Americans are adapting remarkably to the changes in marriage and family life. After some initial resistance, most men have begun to share housework and childcare with their partners far more equitably.
Today, 49 percent of couples say they share child care equally, compared with 25 percent in Fathers who are more involved with their families raise sons who are more expressive and empathic and daughters who are more likely to do well in school—especially in math and science. Meanwhile, working moms have increased the time they spend with their children even as they have increased their hours on the job.
Single mothers have less time to spend with their families than married mothers, but they too have significantly increased their time with children. Even childless and unmarried individuals are doing immense amounts of family work, with one in four American workers spending seven hours or more each week caring for an aging parent. In fact, Naomi Gerstel of the University of Massachusetts and Natalia Sarkisian of Boston College find that childless single individuals give more time and practical support to parents, kin, and friends than married couples do.
Three initiatives seem especially important. The first is to reverse the trend toward widening income inequality, which makes it more difficult for poor families to enter and sustain marriages, and more difficult for single parents to raise their children in ways that can break the cycle of poverty and relationship instability.
Another imperative is to develop family-friendly work policies that are not just reserved for highly paid, highly skilled workers but are guaranteed to all workers through federal regulation. Of the 20 richest nations in the world, all but the United States and Australia offer subsidized maternity or parental leave.

In Australia, workers are entitled to a year off, though it is without pay. The U. Researcher Janet Gornick of Baruch College at the City University of New York notes that public policy in most of Europe ensures the affordability and availability of early childhood education and child care. In Belgium, France, and Italy, nearly all children are enrolled in full-day, quality preschools from the age of three until they begin primary school.
The Scandinavian countries offer a combination of paid parental leave and publicly financed child care for toddlers. In the U. Our child care is unregulated, unevenly available, and underfunded. That needs to change. Finally, we need to stop acting as if heterosexual marriage is the only place where people incur long-term obligations.
