Relation to the means of production [is no longer an] adequate criterion ... for distinguishing the diversity of family forms which exist within a society with ... a predominantly individualistic family type, and in Paul Close 33 which, being capitalist in its basic structure, the majority of the population live by selling their individual labour power. (ibid, p. 133) This statement does imply that the dominant family form in modern society can only be explained in terms of the relationships which families have (by way of the exchange of labour power for wages) with the CMP.

Class divisions and relationships in the Marxian sense explain what Weber and his followers take for granted, namely 'the market' and in particular the market in labour power. Thus, Crompton and Gubbay raise the question of why skills and resources have assumed [a] marketable, commodity-like quality. [They answer] that these 'commodities' have emerged as commodities because of the development of capitalist relations of production. Such a mode of production requires freely transferable property and readily available labour.

The Bergers argue that, on the contrary, the modern family appeared well before, and (by virtue of its functions) helps explain, the advent of industrialisation. They claim that although the 'bourgeois' family's dominance can be traced to the eighteenth-century period of the Industrial Revolution, its origins are to be found in much earlier events. The modern family 'emerged in the West during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries among the merchant and artisan strata of the towns', and 'in Western Europe in the sixteenth century if not earlier' (even as early as 'the high middle ages').
