I apologize, that is not my general definition of family, it is my definition
of a family which should be given some sort of financial support by our
institutions. I do not feel that any group of adults w/o children should
necessarily be given any sort of financial aid. (Though i would rather like
to see groups provide some sort of fund to help the impoverished members
afford events).

>You seem to think it easy to come up with a workable definition.

Easy? No, but I do think it is important.
