"I don’t pronounce you husband and wife"

Development and improvement of virtual reality, the use of the Internet for educational, working and career purposes led to a distinct isolation of the individual. The number of married couples has been steadily decreasing, the value of the institution of marriage itself is minimised. Communication and entertainment is via the Internet. A person can engage in sexual relations before marriage, and the status “unmarried” has long lost its negative connotations in the eyes of society. A family created with the sole purpose of raising children gradually ceases to be regarded as a necessity. Science offers more reliable ways of conception, so there is no need for a permanent partner or marriage.

Thus, in the near future we are likely to witness the revival of small-sized apartments, studios designed for a single resident, with comfortable minimalist interior, stuffed with electronics, a single bed and cars. Six person dinnerware sets, family seating, as well as  heirlooms will exist only in old books.

Robert Thumper Pruitt While I agree with most of this, I do not think that the six-person dinnerware sets, family seating, and heirlooms will disappear. They will simply adapt to the current social customs of the time. As with any custom, times change and what falls out of favor comes back into favor in the following generation.

Kevin Mandrews Humans are social animals so people will still need meaningful and intimate relationships to find happiness in the future. But many people may turn to artificial entities to satisfy their craving for connection and algorithms by then may understand us better than we understand ourselves.
