Back in the day, the American dream for the ideal family involved heterosexual couples with two kids – a girl and a boy – standing smiling in front of a white picket fence home. The reality is far from it.
Today, families come is all types of packages. You have your average American families, LGBTQ+ parents, foster families, adoptive families, single parents, and the Brady Bunch families. Then there are families without children. Each one of them is just as beautiful.
Today, we are focusing on the Brady Bunch.
If you’re familiar with this 1970s show, you would recall that it surrounded the ups and downs of having a blended family. While the show didn’t really zero in on the Bradys’ estate planning, it is a challenge real blended families face.
