What is a family (and what is not)?
I have a question concerning the" family". From a sociological point of view, a family consists of two or one parents and at least one child.
So, my question is what type of living arrangements represent a nonfamily?
For example a married couple that does not have children is not a family.
Do you know more examples?

How do you categorize homosexuals? What about transsexuals? Neither of which is likely to have biological children.

The Former of the family unit was none other than the Creator of man himself. (Matt. 19:4-6) By means of family units this Creative Sociologist purposed to populate the whole earth with a righteous human society of perfect, mature individuals. (Gen. 1:28; Acts 17:26) Such a family circle of humans was lovingly designed to comprise essentially a father, a mother and children. Through marriage this status was brought about and was thus to be maintained. Family members, therefore, were to form a household, a small government, with the father as head and lawgiver responsible to God, and the mother as a subordinate manager over the children.
