The changing family life cycle

The Family Life Cycle and the steps adults go through from young adulthood to older adulthood.  However, the population is changing, young people’s attitudes about normal milestones to achieve as we age, and when we should achieve them are changing.  

 Imagine you could reinterpret the Family Life Cycle for today’s audience.  Propose your steps (and sub-steps) that would capture the young adult generation of today. Review pages 292 – 306 for examples and include 2-3 statements explaining each proposed new new step.
