What do you believe are the most significant reasons American families are disintegrating and how can we improve this situation?

People leave their birthplaces due to many reasons -- to obtain employment or to pursue a new career, to join the military, to change climates, due to divorce, and more.

How can we retain and improve relationships with our families when everyone is spread apart in various states? What is the answer?
