Traditionally, family has been made up predom- inantly of blood relatives but it can also be chosen if desired; family are the people you surround yourself with that you trust the most. Family is something you can create when you and your partner(s) commit to each other and/or you have children. Family life is defined by the routine activities and interactions had together and enjoying each other’s company is vital to having a good experience of family life. Everyone has memories from childhood, good or bad, and you have the power to create those memories for your own children if you choose to have them, making your parenting style a very important consideration. If you choose to be childless what kind of family do you want to build for yourself? Does your family function well together? What are your goals for family life in the next 5 years?
