This document aims to analize differents types of families in Europe. Conclusions:
  • Extended family was the dominant model in history only in normative, but not in quantitative terms. Principle of shared property, but only one heir of the family property
  • Quantitatively the nuclear family dominated. Causes: Low life expectancy which made a family of 3 generations a seldom phenomenon; principle of neolocality and shared property transfer
  • The extended family died out in the sense of living together under one roof
