Summary/Abstract: Family, as the oldest and most significant upbringing force in a society, successfully and consistently performs a duty of reproducing human character demanded by the social life. It used to be for a long time a safe haven in the midst of turbulences caused by agents of social dynamics. However, the modern sociology to an increasing extent problematizes transformations within the postmodern family. The postmodern sociology reveals, locates and analyses family transformation symptoms which in contact with certain incentives of social nature have resulted in almost chain reaction. One may rightly characterize that reaction as crisis, fall, decadence etc. The growing neglect of traditional family values and rules by the modern man leads to a decline in the importance of the family as an institution. Therefore, the approach of this work is to compare individual features of a modern nuclear family and traditional patriarchal family where one attempts to reach out to answer to the extent within one can implement the internalization of the nuclear family in terms of restitution of its structure and values of the conventional practice of developed and preserved within the patriarchal family.
