I have removed a section on the Marxist view of the Family. It is written in an unencyclopaedic manner: it takes a preaching tone, lacks sufficient references, and uses bad English. It also seems out-of-place here - either the perspectives of a range of world views should be discussed or none. TimRR 04:37, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

Merge of content[edit]

I have merged the best content from the sociology of fatherhood/motherhood articles here and replaced with a redirect. I had raised the topic of a merge but these articles gain little attention - I have tried to be bold.

It is debatable, furthermore, whether the sociology of childhood article should also be merged into this one (again with 'sociology of childhood' as the subheading of a redirect). In many cases in the sociology portal, we have a number of separate articles diluting the overall coherency.--Tomsega (talk) 07:21, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

I agree with the merge. May I suggest in the future to make a notice of such proposals at WP:SOCIO?
PS. Could you comment on this removal?
PPS. I see you moved that to history of the family. When moving content between articles, it is a good policy to make a note in the edit summary to which article content is being moved (and in that article, an edit summary note about from where it was moved). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 16:42, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

Comment on section: Statistics on American Families[edit]

In looking at the section "Statistics on American Families," I noticed that some of the data does not specify the date of the statistic. Since these types of statistics can change, I think a date is important.

Some did note the dates and even the source in the list, but I think a citation link would be better. Especially for the data that is located online (like US Census data). Kathyfeller (talk) 21:12, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

Sociology of Interracial Intimacy[edit]

The fact that Chinese and White intermarriage became criminalized in 1901 was more than just inhumane.

Marriage is by state law, so it needs to be clear which state in the U.S. the 1901 law is referring to. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ncepts (talkcontribs) 23:45, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

In 1942, the American Psychiatric Association declared that Homosexuality was a disease.

This is neither a statistic, nor related to families, and has since been removed from the DSM. A few other entries can similarly be removed because they don't seem to relate to the topic.

Sociology of Motherhood[edit]

I think that there should be an elaboration on not just the roles of mothers in different societies. I think that there should be some elaboration on opting out for mothers and when mothers from other countries travel to other countries to earn money. They only elaborated on roles not so much different types of motherhood.
