No, for me it has not changed and never will. A family is either a married couple of husband (male) and wife (female) or the same husband and wife with kids.

 @9KSQQ25Socialist from New York disagreed…2mos2MO

This answer adheres to largely Christian and colonial gender and social values that restrict harmless possibilities for people to live their best lives, such as by excluding polyamorous or queer relationships and the traditional communal method of raising children.

 @Minarchist-08Libertarian from Washington disagreed…1mo1MO

Homosexuality, "polyamory," and "queer relationships," are all moral abominations before God that corrupt the moral fibre of those who engage in them and destroy civilisations. God created human beings male and female, with the intent that one man would marry one woman for life, and that the man would provide for his family while the woman raised children. This is how mankind was created to live, and it is only in a society that adheres strictly to this model that happiness, security, and liberty, can be found.

 @9KVX42L from Tennessee agreed…2mos2MO

Family is a Mother, Father and Kids who love and support each other and help get through rough times.

 @9KSRZMQ from Texas disagreed…2mos2MO

While nuclear families are idealized, excluding single-parent households, same-sex parents, and legal guardians from the definition of family only harms people from making the most out of their circumstances.

A family is someone who takes care and cares for you, blood doesn't always equal family

 @9K226MN from Georgia disagreed…3mos3MO

A family is your flesh and blood relatives. Sometimes they are flawed and imperfect but they are still family.


I believe in individual responsibility and self-reliance, which I highly value. I also recognize that family is not solely defined by blood relations but by care and support. This reinforces the idea that individuals have the power to form their support networks and take care of one another.

I firmly believe that strong families are the foundation of strong communities. Recognizing non-biological connections as a family promotes inclusivity and support within communities, which fosters compassion and strengthens social bonds.

I support policies that promote adoption and foster care, as they pro…  Read more


I believe that it is proven in history that it is how you are raised rather than where you are born that dictates your life which i feel means that who takes care of you or raises you is more important

Family, for me, is the typical Male father, Female mother, and then children. It has not, nor will it ever evolve. This is how God made us, and how I understand it. Sure, there are times when there will be a single parent household, and that can’t be helped, but sometimes, like in a divorce, that can’t be helped.

 @9JVNN56 from South Carolina disagreed…3mos3MO

A family is wherever there is love and defined roles. Is better for a child to be in a loving home then in a orphanage.

 @Minarchist-08Libertarian from Washington disagreed…1mo1MO

It is better for a child to wait until a man and his wife can adopt him than to live under the corruption of a sexually perverse household, or a household that lacks a parent.

 @9JVM46M from Idaho disagreed…3mos3MO

sometimes blood fmily doesnt make them family. its how they treat you and how much respect and trust you are given

 @9KR8LLR from Kentucky answered…2mos2MO

Mom and dad and children. My definition has not changed

 @9KSJMN9 from California agreed…2mos2MO

In American ideology, the ideal has always been mom, dad, and children. Other countries are like this too.

 @9KSJW3Qfrom Washington disagreed…2mos2MO

Well, I mean there are single parents and LGBTQ+ people who don't fit this definition of the family.

 @Minarchist-08Libertarian from Washington commented…1mo1MO

 @9JX6B8W from South Carolina answered…3mos3MO

I think basing political factors on the idea of family is a risky move considering the amount of times that your own family has been an issue in many people's lives. However, I do enjoy the incentivizing of family units.

 @9JX6WFKDemocrat  from New Hampshire commented…3mos3MO

 @9K4W7SS from California answered…3mos3MO

Family are the peoplle who support and love you whether they are blood or not.

 @9K4WN8G from Georgia commented…3mos3MO

I think family doesn't have anything to do with blood family is what is described but its the ones that are there for you love you and know you for YOU no matter what. Blood doesn't mean anything, someone in your family can be your worst enemy.

 @9K6WJPF from Ohio answered…3mos3MO

No, family is the people around me who not only are blood, but also those who care about me the most.

 @9K6YWW5 from Michigan commented…3mos3MO

 @9JWQPCT from Pennsylvania answered…3mos3MO

Family consists of a group of people who are related to each other by blood. It has never evolved for me.


Family can include anyone that you choose to be your family, not just by blood relation. You could be adopted or choose friends to become your family, as not everyone has blood relatives that they like.

 @9JY4MZS from Tennessee disagreed…3mos3MO

I feel that family does not require blood, its the people that help you at your lowest and take care of you

 @9JZG46X from Massachusetts answered…3mos3MO

Family is those you can rely on to be there for you when you need them to and won't make you feel bad for relying upon them, regardless of blood

 @9K3MZXD from New Jersey agreed…3mos3MO

If they are willing to help without making me feel bad, they are trustworthy enough to be considered family.

 @9K3KW2P from Utah agreed…3mos3MO

Family doesn't have to be your blood relatives it can be a friend but it is someone who you can rely on and feel lots of emotions with

 @9K69QGB from Georgia answered…3mos3MO

Family is the people that you decide is; it doesn't have to be blood. This definition has definitely evolved over time. As a child you are only taught that family is through blood and blood only but, as you grow up and you start to hear stories and learning more about the world around you. Then you come to realized that family can be anyone you decide it to be.

 @9KDTQS5 from New York agreed…3mos3MO

I feel that no matter who your blood family is they may not act as family. I have friends that are more like family then my own family

 @9KDPQQR from Illinois agreed…3mos3MO

I agree because people that are blood and not blood towards you can call family or not but at the end of the day it’s the people the stay by your that is your family related or not

 @9JX2JN3 from New Hampshire answered…3mos3MO

Family is whoever you choose to hold close to you. It has nothing to do with blood ties.

 @9JZ8FCY from Illinois agreed…3mos3MO

If you love someone like family then they are a part of your family. It has some to do with the ties to your biological family but family is who you hold close and care about.

 @9JZ7WPP from Colorado disagreed…3mos3MO

Families are related to each other so we have blood ties to each other because we all were born into our families.

 @9K7XBTBDemocrat from Texas answered…3mos3MO

It depends. There's a biological family, which is based on genetics, and there's a social family, who you form your closest bonds with, even stronger than with friends, who raised you most likely, it doesn't have to be anyone biologically related to you.

 @9K9ZPKTPeace and Freedom from Utah agreed…3mos3MO

Being family by blood doesn't really mean you're family. You have to make connections and relationships with your family in order to be a real family.

 @9K9MY2PRepublican from California agreed…3mos3MO

sometimes family sucks and your real family becomes the people who care about you with no obligation

 @9K3M8NW  from Florida answered…3mos3MO

A family isn't just the people who birthed you or helped birth you, it's everyone who can help you and will be there even when you're at your lowest

 @9K6WCF9 from Ohio agreed…3mos3MO

From personal ideals and experiences, I'm closer to my friends and others than my family quite often.


A family is not just the people who raised you. Your family can be step-parents, step-siblings', etc. Family is just the people you love and care about.

 @9K3DN59 from Tennessee answered…3mos3MO

Family used to be a concept everyone wanted but now I feel like people push that away.

 @9K3NS4RDemocrat from Michigan disagreed…3mos3MO

Family is a group of people, not necessarily biologically related, who choose to live and work together.

 @9K3MF9H from Nebraska disagreed…3mos3MO

There are lots of people out there that still want a family, it's just not as common. It's okay to not want a family, just as it's okay to seek out a familial relationship.

 @9JYPG7GSocialist from California answered…3mos3MO

Family i would say is simply those you hold close and care for, more than simply friends of course but it doesn't need to be by blood or marriage.

 @9JZ6JM6 from North Carolina agreed…3mos3MO

I agree completely family is not just blood or marriage. Rather it's those you are the closest and share a special bond with

 @9JZ3GVBProgressive from California agreed…3mos3MO

These ideas of family being those who you hold dear legitimizes groups that once we looked down upon, it let people live their lives in a way that allows them to be happy

 @9JY527Y from South Dakota answered…3mos3MO

Family are people who have always been with you through thick and thin no matter what has happened. Family is someone who will tell you the truth instead of lying to you. Family doesn't have to be blood.

 @9JYJYR7 from Virginia commented…3mos3MO

The family are people who help and fight for good and times and they stop loving you for who u are because they love you that much. Some people don't have blood family their close friends are like family to them.


Family is the those who you're related to and those who are closest to you in life.
