During Modern Family, one of the main characters (Jay) who is a grandfather to teenagers but also a father to a toddler, was asked to socialize with another couple who was said to be very similar. The other man was considerably older and Jay was offended to be associated with someone in that age bracket. This aligns with the Family Life Course Development Framework as Jay struggles to balance his aging and retirement expectations with his much younger wife’s role as she is living life through the middle years.
