Their families are small.
Two of my friends are from families in which the parents are divorced. Their lives have transformed because of their parents divorce. They have had to move to new homes, leave one of their parents as well as some of their friends. The children also had to move to new schools.
The other three of my friends are from families in which their parents have re- married. I am from a nuclear family, consisting of two parents, that is, mother and father. I have a sister and a brother. My own family arrangement is not so different from that of my friends since most of them are from nuclear families. This idea therefore suggests that a family unit is not so different from one society to another. Nuclear families have become more common as industrialization, urbanization and migration continues. This is because most individuals will move to urban areas due to social factors like searching for job opportunities. In these urban areas, it would be more practical to have a small family.
These results suggest that family institutions are changing due to factors such as industrialization and migration that have led to changes in the occupational structures. Family forms are changing in a great effort to adapt and respond to changes in society (Ballantine and Keith, 280).
I belong to Presbyterian religious group since it is the one into which I was born. I worship and pray to God in church. This religion provides guidance to individuals regarding acceptable behaviors in the society. It also makes a huge contribution to the society by teaching and encouraging its members to integrate faith and life in their day-to-day activities.
Presbyterians have been around since the 16th century. Presbyterian beliefs and heritage started with a French/ Swiss theologian called John Calvin (1509- 1564). The church traces its ancestry back to Scotland. The first Presbyterian organization was held in Philadelphia in 1706.
