Why is the nuclear family the norm? Well it’s because men-women relationships are the majority of relationships in the world and easier for them to have children rather than men-men or women-women, who naturally can't have children together and thus go down unnatural procedures to have children. But then you already knew this.

Statistics prove that in single homes negative mental health goes up(1) and the exposure and persuasion of crime goes up(2). These are not positive things to aim for. You will not be helping society by being anti-nuclear family. You will be hindering it.

It's about as "progressive" as a progressive cancer that fests and kills anything that's healthy if you truly think it's fine to jeer at the family unit and believe it's outdated.

We should too support those single mothers and fathers who never expect to be left in the position they face. This is not an argument against single parents as that would be immoral and just stupid. But it could be an argument for people to genuinely think more about their futures and the positives of contraception and family planning in general.

Remember that the majority of single mothers and fathers will tell you that their lives are a "struggle", it's not an easy life to lead and no life is easy with or without children anyway.

Nuclear families haven't been a thing for most of human history. Families were bigger and more interconnected. We are so isolated now. It's not good for mental health. When the adults of a nuclear family are in crisis and have no one to lean on, they feel betrayed by each other. Then the kids lose. The elderly lose as well, because they are stowed away in nursing homes. You can't depend on just one person. It isn't fair to them.
