- This term is sometimes limited to nuclear families or families with biological children or heterosexual couples.
- In contrast to a family of procreation, a family of orientation is the family that an individual is born into or grows up in.
- “Families of orientation, procreation, and cohabitation provide us with some of the most important roles we will assume in life. The nuclear family roles (such as parent, child, husband, wife, and sibling) combine with extended family roles (such as grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, and in-law) to form the kinship system” (Strong, Devault, and Cohen 2011:19).
