From the Paper:

"The pulse of the world constantly fluctuates. Politics, philosophies, and cultural tendencies may transform through the years, and societal beliefs often evolve with larger patterns of thought. This proves especially true in relation to the so called "nuclear family." Often touted by society as the ideal model, the nuclear family exists as an organized structure revolving around a man and a woman of similar race, ethnicity, and social background, together with their children, living in one household under the auspices of a state and church sanctioned marriage. As an ideal prototype, the nuclear family retains value in our culture; however, shifting moral and ethical values have affected its relevance to society over time."
