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.
• Divorce is accepted as normal; there has been a
massive increase in number of divorces.
• Single parent and reconstituted families have increased
as more people divorce.
