Smock discusses the "new American family" on NPR

a PSC In The News reference, 2014

"The new American family: wedding ring, optional" - Michigan Radio. 11/18/2014.

Pamela Smock says the sexual revolution of the 1960s paved the way for new family formation patterns, including cohabitation, childbearing outside of marriage, same-sex and multi-racial couples, more divorced parents and step-families, and fluid household membership. Smock says that some of these changes have had destabilizing influences on children.
