However, in this case, the character of Lorelai's mother is the symbol of a different generation that believed the structure of the family must include both parents. The creation of Lorelai's mother character is even more of a proof that as opposed to the 80s and 90s, the perception on the family values, the family structure, and on the personal life of single mothers have changed dramatically and this change is visible in the mentality of single mothers and in the way in which television deals with this subject.
