Family is a group of people who have blood or marital ties, live under the same roof, run a common household and have a common budget.

There are different types of families:

1. Nuclear family – two parents and children,

2. Single parent family – one parent and children,

3. Extended family – grandparents, parents and children (can include in-laws),

4. Childless family – partners who cannot have or decided not to have a child,

5. Grandparent family – grandparents and children (parents died or because of an addiction or another reason they can't and don't take care about kids).
