Which major cities (figure a metro population of 1+ million minimum), have held onto the concept/template of the nuclear family the greatest with younger generations?

For example— In a city like San Francisco, the idea of two people getting married in their 20s, buying a home, and raising a family that plays outside after work/school feels like an uncommon if not extinct model. SF millenials and those even younger are more as a whole focused on self progression, and defying societal norms of the baby boomers and so on... so which cities are the opposite of that?

Where does someone go who values the traditional family trajectory of earlier generations?

I would say there are as many as we have metro areas given the suburbs of most (if not all) consist of communities with a majority living the traditional American family life.

I know you mean well OP, but this is a frustrating characterization.

No, the millenials are not some ideologically revolutionary group, they are a generation encumbered by heavy debt and stagnant wages, not to mention the extreme costs of raising a child (have you seen the cost of higher education?).

You meant well of course, but characterizing millenials as some liberal aberrants ignores the massive problems burdening our generation. No disrespect intended to you our your thread, of course.


uhhh, to be on topic.... somewhere in the south or midwest? I am near the midwest and notice more nuclear families. Honestly it's more of a socioeconomic thing. Nuclear families also dominate the suburbs.

Albuquerque probably falls short of the 1 million population but I’ve never encountered a more family oriented place and I lived 30+ years in a small midwestern town. We’re talking extended families.
