    Bonjour,

    Ai-je bien saisi le sens de cette expression ?

    "The decline of the natural family has been taken more or less in stride depending upon how secure societies have been about the state's ability to do what the family once did -- i.e. upon Western affluence."

    "selon le degré avec lequel les sociétés ont été sécurisées" (?)
