The 'nuclear' in nuclear family, refers to nuclear bonds (as in Physics) and nuclear bond is incredably stable.

I don't think that the 'traditional' nuclear family is being fased out, but I do think that now that ideals and opinions are changing, that other types of families and households can also be considered as nuclear. It is also more relevant now, that even the so called 'traditional' family, is not neccissarily nuclear.
