What is a Family?

Definition of a family

In the modern society the traditional concept of a family has been eroded somewhat. In the past the word family conjured up the simple notion of a group of people consisting of two parents and one or more children.
Off course, one can add to that the notion of the extended family where the grand-parents could be added to the concept as outlined above.
But today, do we still subscribe to those concepts of what a family is?
How has the notion of family changed in recent times?
Do we have to revert back to the old types of families. Would it be possible?
Let's chat about this....
