I agree with Stefan, my idea of a family has very little to do with
children.  By definition of family I like this one:  A group of people
living under one roof and under one head: Household (Mirriam-Webster, 1974)
If you remove the child from Litch's definition, and change it to
responsibility to each other, I think that it would be a very good definition.

Actually, I don't think that we heard any official voice from the Steppes on
that definition.  Litch has put effort into his definition, so back off.

>(By the way, Mordraut, do you feel "hassled"?)

Nope, never.
