All around the world today, preexisting family patterns are being upended by a revolutionary new force: the seemingly unstoppable quest for convenience by adults demanding ever-greater autonomy. Yet in infancy and childhood and then again much later, in feebleness or senescence, people need more from others. Thus the recasting of the family puts it on a collision course with the inescapable inconvenience of the human condition itself

With gender equality a relatively new phenomenon in modern society, it should be expected that a greater number of women than ever before are exploring new options available to them. This may then translate into a decreased focus on family life, perhaps seen as a hindrance to pursuing alternative goals.
