If you aren't married, then you aren't a family

Why do people have this mentality? If you are residing together with children, then it's a family.

If you look up the definition of family, here's what you get:


a. A fundamental social group in society typically consisting of one or two parents and their children.
b. Two or more people who share goals and values, have long-term commitments to one another, and reside usually in the same dwelling place.
2. All the members of a household under one roof.
3. A group of persons sharing common ancestry. See Usage Note at collective noun.

Why are people so concerned with how others live their life?

Because people like to feel special and think they can only feel that way through the exclusion of others.

I had a family class and the definition we learned about family is huuuuge.
My belief is anyone who considers themselves family is family.
"Our family never shared the same last name
But our family was a family the same
(And they say) Blood is thicker than water
Oh, but love is thicker than blood"

Who cares what other people label it?
If it's family to you then it's family.

My philosophy, is that blood-relation doesn't make you family, how you treat me does.

I've got close friends that treat me ten times better than so-called "family members"

I have been with SO 7 years, we have 2 beautiful daughters together. We are a family.

If you are so committed to each other, why not get married?

People need to make others feel like shit in order to make themselves feel good.
