The early designs of the family life cycle featured successive stages in the progression of primary marriages. But as variant family forms have increased, more complex designs have been created. Updated information is presented on recent changes in selected stages of the family life cycle and in social developments that have contributed to these changes. The paper closes with differing outlooks regarding marital stability in the United States.
