Who is the Family called?
The family is the smallest unit in the human world or else the family is the smallest unit in this society as well. It is the fundamental unit of social organization which teaches us to live in harmony and build cooperative and cordial relations with each other. Every human being is or has been a member of some family.
His existence cannot be imagined apart from the family. Accepting so many changes, our culture and civilization can refine itself, but the existence of the family institution did not come under any threat. They may have been made and broken by becoming, but their existence cannot be denied.
His appearance has changed and his values have changed but his existence cannot be questioned. No matter how much modern ideology we are growing in, but in the end, we feel satisfaction only in converting our relationship with the institution of marriage into family.
