"Normal" Families

From Institute for Family Studies (yes, 2015 so a little dated):

"Yet despite all the talk about the growing irrelevance of marriage, 43 million children, a 58-percent majority, were living with both their birth mother and biological father in a traditional married-couple family. (See Figure 1.)"

Of course, marriages often fail because of divorce or spousal death.  From Census Bureau 2016:

"The majority of America’s 73.7 million children under age 18 live in families with two parents (69 percent), according to new statistics released today from the U.S. Census Bureau."

You were not expecting that!  Modern Family is television, not reality.
