Text «Family Life in Britain» (upper-intermediate)

Прочитайте и переведите текст. Жирным шрифтом выделены слова из списка №2 «Family and Relationship»

The condition of the British family is a frequent topic throughout Britain today. A typical British family used to consist of mother, father and two children. But in recent years there have been many changes in family life. Some of them have been caused by new laws, others are the result of social changes. For instance, as the law made it easier to get a divorce, the number of divorces has increased. In fact one marriage in every three ends in divorce, which gives rise to a lot of one-parent fami­lies. Society is now more tolerant of unmarried people, unmarried cou­ples and single parents than it used to be some years ago. The majority of divorced people marry again and sometimes take responsibility for a second family.

Close relatives and members of a family groups — grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins — keep in touch, but they see less of each other than they used to. This is because people often move away from their home town to work, and so the family becomes scattered. The traditional season for the family reunion is Christmas when relatives travel many miles in order to spend it together.

In general, each generation is eager to become independent of par­ents in establishing its own family unit, and this fact can bring about so­cial as well as geographical differences within the larger family group. There are about 10 million old-age pensioners in Britain, of whom about 8% cannot live entirely independently. The government gives fi­nancial help in the form of a pension but it is becoming more and more difficult for the normal economy to support the increasing number of elderly people. Nowadays more than half of all old people are looked af­ter at home. Many others live in Old People’s Homes, which may be pri­vate or state owned.

Old People’s Homes — Дома престарелых

Relationships within the family undergo certain changes. Parents treat their children more as equals than they used to, and children have more freedom to make their own decisions. The father is more involved in the process of bringing up children, mainly because the mother goes out to work. Due to increased leisure facilities and more money modern life provides wider opportunities for the individual to take part in activ­ities outside the home. Although the family holiday, which is usually taken in August, and often abroad, is still an important part of family life. Many children have holidays away from home, often with school or college friends or other organized groups.
