While the old ‘ideal’ involved couples marrying young, then starting a family, and staying married till ‘death do they part,’ the family has become more complex, and less ‘traditional,’ said Pew.And, they added, while families have changed radically, so have when children are born.

The details:

• 15 percent of children are living with two parents who are in a remarriage.

• 6 percent of all children are living with a stepparent.

• 34 percent of children today are living with an unmarried parent — up from just 9 percent in 1960.

• 4 percent are living with two cohabiting parents.

• 5 percent of children are not living with either parent. In most of these cases, they are living with a grandparent.
