Stages of Family Life: Crash Course Sociology #38

submitted by Huzzaz on 12/19/17 1

One way of thinking about family life says that there are stages that families move through: courtship, marriage, child-rearing, and family life in your later years. We’ll also discuss changing patterns of marriage and childbearing in the US, highlighting some of the varied family types that exist. Crash Course is made with Adobe Creative Cloud.
