Explain the definition of joint family and nuclear family

1 Answer

  1. Best Answer

    The members of a nuclear family live together in a single home or in close proximity, such as an apartment. However, the structure of a nuclear family is distinct from a single-parent family.

    A joint family consists of three or more generations living together in the same household or in close proximity. In a joint family, the responsibility for a family member’s care and well-being may be shared among the members of the family. Often, joint families are associated with cultures whose traditional structure is matrilineal.
