    Is this sentence correct?

    Nowadays, we tend to live in small nuclear families rather than to live in large extended ones.

    Remove the second instance of "to live". You can also remove "in" after it (before "large").
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you. Are them ungrammatical or unnatural?
