I have a reading comprehension exercise, could you help me to answer?
Thank you so much.
Here it is.
The nuclear family, consisting of a mother, a father, and their children, may be more an American ideal than an American reality. Of course, the so-called traditional American family was always more varied than we had been led to believe, reflecting the very different racial, ethnic, class, and religious customs among American groups.
The most recent government statistics reveal that only about one third of all current American families fits the traditional mold and another third consist of married couples who either have no children or have none still living at home. Of the final one third, about 20% of the total number of American households are single people, usually women over sixty-five years old. A small percentage, about 3% of the total, consist of unmarried people who choose to live together, and the rest , about 7% are single, usually divorced parents, with at least one child. Today, these varied family types are typical, and therefore, normal. Apparantly, many Americans are achieving supportive relationships in family forms other than the traditional one.
