A group of related humans (or animals) that are blood related. Most children hate them because their Mommy didn't give them what they want. Excuse them for not buying you a Plasma TV. Most kids also hate them because "They annoy me." Heads up, you're not going to get through life with that attitude because your gonna have a worse time with coworkers and your ex's.

They're not that bad. I mean they feed you and water you. What more do you need?
Kid: "I hate my family."
Other Kid: "And why is that?"
Kid: "Because my sister gets everything she wants like a new cellphone and a pet. But I don't get anything."
Other kid: "You think maybe because your sister loves your family regardless instead of only loving them when she gets presents?"
Kid: "Whatever I hate my Parents."

(see also: parents)

1) An imaginary concept invented by adults, who use the excuse of 'blood relation' to explain why a: you must have their permission for everything you do, b: you must always love them more than you love anybody else, and c: everything they do to ruin your life is 'for your own good.'

2) The name you give to the people whose house you live in until you can afford not to.

3) What it's called when two people have a baby and then proceed to stake a permanent claim on anything and everything to do with that child's life from conception until death based on the idea that just because he or she came out of their private parts that gives them the right and obligation to be a part of their life forever.

4) A contract made between two generations when the younger generation receives allowance, food, and bedding and the older generation receives complete and total power over the younger and the right and ability to completely ruin their lives whenever beneficial to them.
1. Ex. "YES you have to come on this week-long trip with us; you're a part of this family!"

2. Ex. "Let's go to your house; I'd rather you not have to put up with my family."

3. Ex. "You will respect us because we are your family!"

4. Ex. "You will do this because that's what it means to be in this family."

2.Collateral Family
Aunts, uncles, cousins etc.

3.Adoptive Family
Family by adoption

Your step-parent's side of the family.Your step-kids are also your step-family. Step-grandpa, stepmom, step-sister etc.

Family of Family or Stepfamily, but not YOUR family.

Your god-parents side of the family is your god-family. God mother, god father, god sister etc.

This is what happens when you say "Love ya like a sister!" to your BFF. She becomes costco family because you love her like family.

Your legal gaurdian(s) and the people who live with them are your custodial family, related or not.

9.Marital Family
Your spouse and anyone who lives with them falls into this category.

The family of your spouse, or the spouse of a relitave.

The concept of family is merely a figment of the imagination, as families are typically based on love which is also a figment of the imagination. Due to the even shallower concept of sexual attraction of which famillies are physically created, the concept of family is not much deeper. It will never turn out as planned to be and the children will unfortunately continue to live their lives in search of love once again due to their sexual attraction.
People who are lonely long for "family" because it is a mental tie made of desperation for physical and emotional protection.

Family, a.k.a "The Filipino family", "FilaMafia" is an East Coast organized street gang, mainly spread across Southern Virginia's Hampton Roads Area which consist of the 7 cities mainly Virginia Beach. They are mainly composed of Filipino Americans. The origin of the gang is unknown, but many believed that it was formed in various high schools in Hampton Roads mainly Salem High, Norview High, Lake Taylor High, Green Run High and Granby High School. The gang was mainly formed to help defend Filipino's from harm at schools. The gang then gained a strong reputation for violence in some schools, particularly those located in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Almost all the of the gang members are still very active in the Filipino-American Communities they live in or have settled in and several of them have post-graduate degrees and or are very successful in bussiness in Hampton Roads also a few have migrated to California, Texas, Florida, Nevada and Washington-DC/Baltimore Area. The were well known in the late 80's to early 90's as the "The Filipino Mafia." Several gangs have formed after the first generation grew older such as BMC and LMC which have lineage from the original founding members of Family.
