Definition - What does Family mean?
A family is defined as a unit of people that live together in the form of one or more parents and one or more children. The idea that the people are either related by blood or have chosen to become a family is irrelevant; all that matters is that the people are living their daily lives conjointly with one another or with respect to what the rest of the unit is doing.
