The nuclear family composed of a married couple and their children still accounts for the majority of Israeli families, the Central Bureau of Statistics said on Sunday.

In its annual compendium of statistics issued ahead of Family Day on Tuesday, the government agency reported that, in 2014, approximately 95 percent of all Israeli couples were married.

The remaining 88,000 pairs were described as “cohabiting” – a “low rate” compared to countries such as Italy at 7% and Norway at 27%.
