Dictionary.com defines family as “a social unit consisting of one or more adults together with the children they care for.” It can also be defined as two people living in a close personal relationship together with their offspring. The family unit is and always will be the basic social organization or unit of any society. This relationship alone provides stability in a sexual, emotional, intellectual and social way as no other can. When families are strong, society is strong as a rule. When families are weak, societies begin to break down.
