A new lifestyle According to the last CENSUS the number of single people all over the world has grown rapidly over the last decade to over 12 million. And the modern psychologists assert that being single is now a HIGHLY MOTIVATED lifestyle which is accepted throughout the society. Many people now are HAPPY-GO-LUCKY and have a RELAXED ATTITUDE TO LIFE enjoying it to the full swing without FOSTERING CLOSE LINKS WITH a fulltime partner or without need to live within an IMMEDIATE FAMILY.
The next very important issue touches the question of the young and the old people and their RAPPORT WITH the family members. Nowadays the young people are becoming more and more REBELLIOUS and have A TENDENCY TO be independent from their parents at the very early age. From the one hand there is nothing wrong with it, but the reverse side of this matter is rather sad. Very often these youngsters get accustomed to live by their own and begin to forget about the importance of the CLOSE family TIES.
As a result the old people who need to be loved and well cared for LANGUISH alone in their tiny flats remembering their GOODY-TWO-SHOES, BUBBLY NATURED and SINGLE-MINDED children and grandchildren with an ELUSIVE smile. And what is the worst of all this some people consider it normal to send their parents or grandparents to the retirement homes just in order to DISCARD the burden and to enjoy their own life. Some of these people are quite sure that it isn't even necessary to visit their relatives.
