Family in change

Family is changing. What does science know about it? What impact does this have on legal issues? Are there moral boundaries? The perspectives on family change are as varied as our interviewees.

Family is changing. This is commonplace for us. We know patchwork families, have heard of the alternating model and are also familiar with single parents. New family constellations make it clear that this does not necessarily have to be born out of necessity. The desire to have children does not have to be linked to a partnership. New models bring new freedoms.
