    The Perfect Family Is a Myth - Live Science

    There is also no real evidence that the nuclear family as we know it today has been around very long.

    Anthropologists have speculated that the original family of our long ago hominid past was probably groups of sisters and a few hangers-on males, and that cooperative childcare from female relatives was probably more important than love between a man and a woman.

    Even today in Western culture, the nuclear family is rare.

    "perfect" when applied to any situation is a myth.
