Family structures such as those of a single-parent and unmarried parents would affect the stability of child support. In some European countries, the role of marriage and responsibilities for children strengthen through legislation.

Intra-household allocation may be a key issue for families, as the allocation in some families rests on an equal division of financial resources while in some other families these resources are divided based on bargaining between the father and mother.

Social policies may influence family structures. For instance, in Singapore, the government’s underlying philosophy is that a family is responsible for itself and the government’s intervention in welfare should be minimal. This translates into how important the family unit is in politics. Public housing is preferably given to married couples (who have established a family unit) as opposed to single people (no family unit).
