Image of page 4
The Longevity Revolution A white baby girl born today has a greater chance of living to be 60  than her counterpart born in 1870 had to see her first birthday. For first time in history the average couple has more parents living  than children! Implications: Stronger emotional bonds between parents and children Longer marriages and parent-child relationships Most of the parent-child relationship is spent when the children are adults Encourages companionate style of marriage since couple will spend large  portion of their relationship without children at home.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
