2007 in US:

2007 in US 1 out of 6 children in America lives with only one parent, and the number of such households may well increase in the future. Under the circumstances, it is only fitting that a number of thoughtful men and women should continue to search for more stable, "new and improved" family models.

Why it has disintegrated?:

Why it has disintegrated? According to Dr. Tripathi, the value of traditional value system and status of women got badly affected with the passage of time because of reasons like political and cultural invasions, urbanization, industrialization, changed socio-economic conditions, etc.

Why it has disintegrated?:

These factors are ever growing industrialization, city based living and to a great extent modern education and construct of the contemporary social thinking itself. Why it has disintegrated?

Why it has disintegrated?:

kula-kñaye praëaçyanti kula-dharmäù sanätanäù dharme nañöe kulaà kåtsnam adharmo'bhibhavaty uta With the destruction of the dynasty, the eternal family tradition is vanquished, and thus the rest of the family becomes involved in irreligion. Why it has disintegrated?

Why it has disintegrated?:

In the system of the var ëäç rama institution there are many principles of religious traditions to help members of the family grow properly and attain spiritual values. The elder members are responsible for such purifying processes in the family, beginning from birth to death. But on the death of the elder members, such family traditions of purification may stop, and the remaining younger family members may develop irreligious habits and thereby lose their chance for spiritual salvation. Therefore, for no purpose should the elder members of the family be slain. Why it has disintegrated?

Is it Possible?:

Is it Possible? "Most joint families disintegrate when the elders lose moral authority," says Mr. A.V. Subba Rao, an advocate. Kali Yuga is the age of Quarrel and Hypocrisy

Benefits of Extended Family:

Benefits of Extended Family Economical Ecological and Environmental Social Psychological Cultural Health Spiritual

Extended Family:

Extended Family Joint families are like microcosms of an entire world. They are the first training grounds, where people learn interpersonal skills. People in joint families learn lessons of patience, tolerance, cooperation and adjustment. They also learn what it means to take collective responsibility. One for all and all for one.

Economical:

Economical:

Economical Speaking in support of the joint family system, Dr. Mona Khaitan, a professor of business in MassBay Community College, presented data suggesting the joint family system fares better economically. According to the National Family Health Survey of 1998-1999, while joint families form only 35% of the low income households, they form 53% of the high income households.

Economical:

Economical Dr. Khaitan explained the better economic success of the joint family as it "enjoys the economies of scale; the costs are lower than if two or three households were to be maintained, making for increased income." In addition to the economic advantage, Professor Khaitan advanced the idea of 'relational wealth', original proposed by late Professor Romesh Diwan of Rensselaer Polytechnic College in Troy, NY. This is intangible wealth amassed that promotes physical, emotional, intellectual, and psychic wellbeing of each individual.

Ecological & Environmental:

Ecological & Environmental Joint Families May Be More Environmentally Sound Source: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/cms.dll/html/comp/ LONDON, ENGLAND, January 14, 2003: Living with mom and dad, rather than venturing out on your own may actually contribute to saving the planet.

Ecological & Environmental:

From an environmental stance, as the number of households with one, two, or three occupants increase, proportionately so too will energy consumption, land and water use and construction materials. Other experts, such as sociologists, agree that more households means more energy use. Liu calls the study a Wake-up Call! Ecological & Environmental

Social:

Social High divorce rates Working mothers – Cannot spend time with Kids Security, education and Welfare of Children are not met properly. Raise in Oldage homes corresponds to raise in Nuclear families and Divorce rates

Social:

Social The ageing India combined with a declining joint family system faces a crisis in social security for elderly. The government pension system has been converted from a defined benefit system to a Defined Contribution one. The mandatory schemes like Employees' Provident Funds Schemes cover a relatively small segment of the total work force. In all, more than 80% of the work force is not covered by any mandatory retirement/social security schemes. Prof. Vaidynathan IIM, Bangalore (Declining Joint Family & Emerging crisis in Old Age)

Social:

Social It is required for India to think of innovative products and systems to deal with the issues. Reverse mortgage on housing stock and converting huge stock of gold held by households by single premium pension products may help to some extent. But, it is equally important to stress on family values and savings based life style to face the long-term implications of the emerging crisis in the social security scene.

Psychological:

Psychological School shoot-outs in US School violence in India Juvenile delinquency due to poor family structure Psychological effects of single child (no sibling) and Nuclear Family Crime rate connected with Nuclear Family system

Health:

Health State expenditure on the Family insurance on Health

Spiritual:

Spiritual Concept of Varna Sankara By the evil deeds of those who destroy the family tradition and thus give rise to unwanted children, all kinds of community projects and family welfare activities are devastated. --B.g:1.42

Spiritual:

Devayäné wished to marry him, but at first he refused to accept her because of her being a daughter of a brähmaëa. According to çästras, a brähmaëa could marry the daughter of a kñatriya but a kñatriya could not marry the daughter of a brähmaëa. They were very much cautious about varëa-saìkara population in the world. Spiritual

Spiritual:

This Vedic social organization is very good in that it stops the promulgation of illicit sex life, or varëa-saìkara, which appears under different names in this present day. Unfortunately in this age although the father and mother are anxious to get their children married, the children refuse to get married by the arrangement of the parents. Consequently, the number of varëa-saìkara has increased throughout the world under different names. Spiritual

Nuclear Family Disadvantages:

Nuclear Family Disadvantages Nuclear family system has its own advantages, which exactly are not advantages but the ways out to the problems in joint family. The core strength of the nuclear family system lies in ‘Fewer the members, lesser the problems.’

Nuclear Family Disadvantages:

The problems commonly found in joint family system are automatically eradicated because there is no one to produce those problems, in case of nuclear families. This solution is achieved but at the cost of an ironic set of factors that do count. Nuclear Family Disadvantages

Nuclear Family Disadvantages:

This set of factors and the results of those factors include: Loneliness and Depression: Sharing Joys and Grieves: Development of Children: Nuclear Family Disadvantages

Solution:

Solution Radical transformation of society as a whole. They believe that a "new man" and a "new woman" have to be created before a better family system can be devised. The prevailing social order preconditions everyone against achieving true happiness. They find human nature itself deformed by our present unhealthy civilization and therefore demand a "fresh start"
