The family is often used as a blanket term for a general set of relationships that are domestic rather than public. (Comaroff, 1980, Gough, 1993: 182-194, Lyle and Murray, 1980: 112-115 and Pastemak, Ember and Ember, 1997: 77-85; 191-202) It is generally assumed that a family consists of consanguineal which is known as blood relations and affinal relations which are known as married relationships.

Every individual marriage in itself is different from all of the other marriages in the world; they’re each a bond between two individuals who either love one another or benefit from/ support each other.

According to this theory, nature of love is changing fundamentally and it can create either opportunities for democracy or chaos in life (Beck & Beck- Gernsheim, 1995). Love, family and personal freedom are three key elements in this theory. This theory states that the guidelines, rules and traditions which used to rule personal relationships have changed. “Individuals are now confronted with an endless series of choices as part of constructing, adjusting, improving or dissolving the unions they form with others” (Giddens, 2006).
