Most young people look forward to the day they will finish school, get a job, meet someone special, get married, and have many kids; at least that is how it used to be many years back. From a young age, men used to know that it was their role to provide for the family while a woman’s place was always to bear children and take care of the home. Well, let's just say things have vastly changed in 2019.
Many decades back, separation and divorce were not common and if a couple had reached a point where the two parties involved had to go their separate ways, the process used to be long and tedious. However, these days, so much has changed because the rate at which people are going through a divorce is arguably the highest it has ever been in history.
Many Hollywood homes consist of blended families, with men and women assuming parental roles over children that are not biologically their own. Gone are the days that people used to frown at individuals for entering a union with a child from a previous relationship, a great improvement in society's attitude judging by what used to happen a few years back.
