The statement I have chosen concerns questions about what “family” is and what its role in society is. Today I would like to find out why Victor Hugo calls the family a crystal, because there are a lot of notions to this word.
The relevance of this topic is that the family, as a social institution, began to form about five hundred thousand years ago, and until now almost every one of us is a member of a large or small family.

In that year, the living conditions of young couples improved and fertility increased due
