- Family, marriage, education, and religion are areas that influence our lives daily. Write an essay answering the following questions. You must apply one of the following in some capacity—conflict, functionalist, or symbolic interactionist perspective:
How has the institution of marriage changed over time? How could cohabitation and divorce influence this? When looking at the family unit, what changes have occurred in the structure of family? How is diversity a factor in current family makeup, as opposed to past family structure? How do education and religion affect both family and marriage?
Feel free to relate this to your own family structure.
Your assignment must be a minimum of two pages. Use APA style when providing in-text citations and references.
