The basic unit of civilization. The one safe corner in a hostile world. An incubator of values and character. The cornerstone of child development. A government sanctioned living arrangement. A pact for morally condoned sex. A covenant of dependency. A bridge between generations. An economic partnership. An efficient means of holding and transferring property.

The family has been called all these things, and more. Where once it was respected and revered as a sacred institution, it is now often rejected, ridiculed and redefined as an archaic form of domestic bondage. Political activists and pop psychologists consider it the breeding ground for all neurosis. Yet most of us still hold fond memories of childhood, and continue to hunger for the warmth and support only family can provide.
