In 1976, 60% of families (be) Check answers couples with children. By 1996, this (fall) Check answers to 51%. Part of this change can be attributed to the increase in one-parent families with dependent children, but most of the change is due to the increase in the proportion of couple-only families. People (have) Check answers children later in life, and are living longer. Therefore, they(spend) Check answers more time living in couple-only families, both before they have families and after their children (leave)Check answers home.
