The number of homes in America with the traditional 'nuclear family' of a married couple with children is now at a record low, according to Census data. 

The Census Bureau's count showed that 17.8 percent of the United States' 130 million households featured married parents with children under the age of 18. 

That's only down from 18.6 percent from last year but down much more significantly from over 40 percent in 1970.
