Family Relations Researcher Comments on Nuclear Families

Robert Milardo, UMaine professor of family relations, was quoted in a Lewiston Sun Journal report about U.S. Census rates that show there are fewer nuclear families living in Maine. Milardo told the newspaper the increasing numbers of single men raising children without spouses is interesting because traditionally, single-parent fathers have had difficulty maintaining involvement with their children. The increase, he said, is a good thing because it means more fathers are staying involved.
