Nowadays, there is no longer any “typical” Thai family. Today we are seeing a large variety of families, and the trend is towards more variety, not less: nuclear families of two parents and one or, less frequently, two children; couples – including same-sex couples, without children; single persons, both young and old; skipped- generation families with one or two grandparents and grandchildren. It is important to accept that this diversity is likely here to stay and indeed increase, the reasoning for which will be explained throughout this report.
