Aging And Ethics pp Cite as. The focus of this chapter is on how families and relationships within them have been affected by demographic change and by the wider societal changes that are associated with population aging. Decreased mortality, altered patterns of fertility, and the increasing imbalance in sex ratios during the second half of adulthood have had profound effects on families. This chapter relates these changes to some key aspects of family life, touches on how other characteristics of aging societies have contributed to changes in family worlds, and outlines some of the issues that will be confronting families as our aging society faces the twenty-first century. A final section contrasts the consequences these patterns of change are posing for the separate life experiences of men and women. Unable to display preview.
