MOSCOW, August 28 (Itar-Tass) - The main sign of an ideal family in Russia is considered to be mutual understanding and well-being of a family, according to the results of a public opinion poll conducted by the All-Russian Center for the Study of Public Opinion (WCIOM), which published its results on Wednesday.
Around 25% of respondents believe in mutual understanding and mutual respect as the main sign of an ideal family. Well-being and financial stability were named second in importance by 22% of the polled. The presence of a father, a mother and children in a family (a full family) closes the list of the important factors for a family to be considered an ideal one, said 17% of those interviewed.
Only 13% believe in love as the most important thing in a family; 11% of respondents said that the most important thing is happiness of every family member. 8% said that the presence of children in a family was the most important thing.
The younger the family is the more the partners believe in love, which, in their opinion, characterizes an ideal family, said 10% of respondents from an advanced-age group and 19% of the young people.
The older the respondents are, the more significance they attach to mutual understanding (from 17% to 31%).
At the same time, 19% of respondents found it difficult to characterize the ideal family.
The WCIOM poll was conducted in 130 towns in 42 districts, regions and republics of the Russian Federation on August 17-18, 2013 during which 1,600 respondents were interviewed. The statistical margin of error was no more than 3.4%.
