- Nuclear family structure – With the advent of growing number of opportunities in cities and towns, more people want to leave their smaller towns and migrate to urban cities. Also, lifestyle changes and the generation gap has led to fewer joint families and growing number of nuclear families. This means there is no social structure to take care of our family in case of an eventuality.
