The traditional American family which used to be the building block of our great nation seems to be under assault on many different sides in this generation. Not only are many trying to re-define ‘family’ as merely a bunch of folks who live together for some reason or another, but now it is becoming popular for couples to choose to live a ‘childfree life’ that does not include the having or raising of children. The most recent issues of TIME magazine explores that option and some might say it even glorifies that choice.

We have already seen this choice prevailing among the traditional population in many countries of Europe where there is now an actual concern whether the traditional languages and cultures will even carry on for another generation since most of the increase is taking place among immigrant families with a different language, culture and religion.

They are also more oriented toward traditional family values. In the future if the increase continues, the United States could become a country with two prevailing languages like Canada plus the Catholic Church could become much larger as compared with the major Protestant denominations.
