Family is a group of people related either by consanguinity or affinity. It forms the basis for social order. The purpose of the family is to maintain the well-being of its members and of society. Ideally, families offer predictability, structure, and safety as members mature and learn to participate in the community. Historically, most human societies use family as the primary purpose of attachment, nurturance, and socialization.

ಮಾನವರಲ್ಲಿ ಒಂದು ಕುಟುಂಬವು ರಕ್ತಸಂಬಂಧ, ಹೊಂದಾಣಿಕೆ ಅಥವಾ ಸಹವಾಸದಿಂದ ಒಟ್ಟಾಗಿರುವ ಒಂದು ಗುಂಪು ಎಂದು ಹೇಳಬಹುದು. ಕುಟುಂಬವು ಸಮಾಜದ ಬಹು ಮುಖ್ಯ ಅಂಗವಾಗಿದೆ. ಬಹಳಷ್ಟು ಸಂದರ್ಭಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಮಕ್ಕಳು ಜನರೊಂದಿಗೆ ಬೆರೆತು ಸಾಮಾಜಿಕವಾಗಿ ಸಮರ್ಥರಾಗಲು ಕುಟುಂಬ ಒಂದು ಅಗತ್ಯ ಸಂಸ್ಥೆಯಾಗಿ ನಿಲ್ಲುತ್ತದೆ. ಭಾರತದ ಇತಿಹಾಸ ಹಾಗೂ ಸಂಸ್ಕೃತಿಯನ್ನು ಅವಲೋಕಿಸಿದಾಗ, ಕುಟುಂಬವನ್ನು ಅವಿಭಕ್ತ ಹಾಗೂ ವಿಭಕ್ತ ಎಂದು ವರ್ಗೀಕರಿಸಬಹುದು. ವಿದೇಶಿ ಸಂಸ್ಕೃತಿಯ ಪ್ರಭಾವದಿಂದಾಗಿ ಇತ್ತೀಚಿಗೆ ಏಕ ಪೋಷಕ ಕುಟುಂಬವೊಂದು ನಿರ್ಮಾಣವಾಗಿದೆ.
