Top definition
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.

It's not necessarily about who's blood you have, or who you're forced to spend the holidays with. It's about people you love and they love you back. You'll always be there for your family when they need you, and they'll always be there for you. Blood related or not.
We're so close that I consider her family.

A bunch of people who are forced to talk to each other. Half the people want to strangle each other. You often like the pet better than you like the people. The worst part is the dreaded family reunion where you meet family members you didn't even know you had...like the one drug addict or the one member of your family that managed to get into Harvard.
I don't wanna go to this family dinner.

I wanna strangle my brother.

I like my dog much better than I like my siblings
