Besides, Emil Salim in 1983 states that the family is the smallest part of the structure of society that will be the basis in creating a country.
According to a psychological sense, the family is a group of people living together in a dwelling together and each member feel their inner linkage resulting in mutual influence, mutual regard and mutual submission (Soelaeman 1994: 5-10).

This paradigm emphasizes the feedback mechanism operates in generating stability and change. Causality is circular in many homes.

The emergence of symptomatic behaviors in family members at the time of transition in the life cycle of the family signifies family had difficulty in adjusting to the changes. 
Family life cycle leads to an arrangement of the theme of the view that the family as a system to change. There are special development tasks that must be met for each development. 
In the family, men and women grew up with different role expectations, experiences, goals, and opportunities. These sex differences, influences the interaction later married. The number of women entering the work force these days affects also the tradition of the roles of men and women on household responsibilities and work outside the home.
Ethnicity and socio-economic considerations also affect the family's lifestyle.
