To those from small families who married or entered into a committal relationship with those


from large and very large families, which one is the more openminded, liberal, accepting, and adventurous of the two of you? Usually, small families are more liberal while large families are more conservative in terms of ideology and belief systems. There is more of an equal parity in small families than it is in large and very large families where there is more of a hierarchical relationships.Parents in small families are more democratic and warm while in large and very large families, they are more authoritarian and harsh.

    You have SAID it, totally concur. At least you're honest regarding your family of origin situation. MOST people from large families ARE NOT, they are IN DENIAL regarding how unhappy their childhoods were but put on a 'HAPPY' face for the world.

    I read a book not so long ago stating that because of the large # of children, parents of large families tend to employ harsher means to control their children.Large families are not warm/interactive as small families are.
