Document Summary

Family: an enduring commitment between a man and a woman who feed, shelter, and nurture their children until they reach maturity. From an evolutionary perspective, the human family enhanced survival by ensuring an even balance of males (hunters) and females (gatherers) within a social group to provide protection against starvation when food was scarce. An extended relationship between a male and female motivates the male to invest in child rearing to increase the odds of child survival. The family provides the following vital services for society: Economic services: producing and distributing goods and services. Social order: devising procedures for reducing conflict and maintaining order. Socialization: training the young to become competent, participating members of society. Emotional support: helping others surmount emotional crises and fostering in each person a sense of commitment and purpose. Other institutions developed when the demands could no longer be met by only the family.
