SummaryOver the last 50 years, our society has undergone huge demographic shifts with regards to family. Fewer people are living in a home with a married head of household, and family sizes have decreased as families have had fewer children and more people have chosen to raise children as single parents. Some religious institutions and leaders voice concerns about the decline of marriage, while others have embraced or at least accepted these changes. This debate polarizes our society, as some Americans are trying to mend what they see as cracks in the foundation of our society while others are seeking to move toward greater openness and tolerance. This study takes on these changes, exploring issues of family, marriage, and parenting in the context of America's religious life.
