  • Robert Chester
    • Extent and importance of family diversity has been exaggerated
    • Sees nuclear family as being dominant, recognises traditional nuclear family has changed to 'neo-conventional'
      • Neo-conventional = both spouses go out to work, division of labour > equal
    • Argues 'family diversity' is more of passing of time i.e. life cycle than people choosing new family arrangements
    • EVALUATION
      • RAPOPORTS - argue this is not true, diversity is very important to understand family life today
