Why must it be a pair even. I know families where there are 3 persons
who act as parents. As well, are the other members of the family limited
to being the children of the parents or are all dependants included?

The problem is defining "family" in particular.

Personally I don't care since I have the funds to afford the cost
associated with getting in, but there are only 2 people in my family
right now.
