A group of people, usually of the same blood (but do not have to be), who genuinely love, trust, care about, and look out for each other. Not to be mistaken with relatives sharing the same household who hate eachother. REAL family is a bondage that cannot be broken by any means.
Family relationships:

Parents actually enjoy spending time with their children. They help them help themselves make it into the world successfully.

Siblings look out for and love one another. Older siblings generally help take care of younger siblings.

The children respect their parents. The parents deserve their respect.

Spouses married each other out of love not for money, social status, or fantasies of fancy weddings.

The close relationships among a body of human beings through blood. Usually are annoying and invasive around the holidays.
"You can pick your friends, but you can't pick your family. Unless you kill them, marry somebody and procreate to start a new one."

people you love and love you back, not neccessarily blood or biological, but you trust them and they trust you, and they take care of you and you take care of them.

A word used to force you to do things you don't want to do.
1. So you're going to leave your family just like that?
2. You have to forgive him he's your family, who cares if he shit in your cereal and raped your dog.

Family is overrated.

People who get into your buisness and live in the same house as you who your stuck with for the rest of your life till you move out. The worst thing is, sometimes you have to talk to them. :O

Three types of family
-the family your born into
-the family you marry into
-the family you make
Its always changing, people die, get born, marry in and divorce out, but its people who for some reason or another claim each other, whether it's by blood or by your own choice.
I hate family reunions, people are always coming up to me and saying, 'HI!! You look so much bigger than the last time I saw you!' and I'm just thinking, is it bad that I don't know who you are?
