Category: Family

A family is defined as a group of birth, marriage, or adoption. Other family members include in-laws, step-relatives, and foster parents. Aunts and uncles are not considered to be immediate family members. In America, the term family is often used to describe a household with no blood relation between members. Although families may have common ancestors when they were first formed, they will eventually develop their unique patterns of interaction as they grow older.
