Modern Families think pets are more important than in-laws

A study has revealed that us Brits believe happiness is more important than money, that pets are an important family member and see the Beckhams as the best representation of a modern family. 

The study, commissioned by Matalan, found that, as more parents remarry, the country is turning into Brady Bunch Britain with more and more families combining and living together.
