I would like to say no but I think family should mean something to someone of the family. That person wouldn't be here if it wasn't for his/her parents so I guess they should be greatfull.

The word family will always mean something different from person to person. For me, friends are better than most family.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 12/3/07 - 1:07:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
I love all my family, but I don't necessarily like some of them
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 12/3/07 - 1:12:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Never. Because we have the same blood pumping through our veins means sh*t to me. I neither like or love all of my family members. I only consider two people in the entire world my family. My brother and my mother.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 12/3/07 - 1:13:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'll make my own family...

We should love our families because they are beings worthy of and requiring our love.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 12/3/07 - 7:08:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Why not love everyone untill they give you reason not to?

I agree. I'd love them til they did something unforgivable.

Not necessarily. Someone's father could be a total dickhole who doesn't deserve their love. Hali's point is pretty much dead on.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 12/3/07 - 9:08:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well, I certainly don't feel obliged.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 12/3/07 - 9:11:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. Family doesn't mean anything in the long run. You can't choose your family.

Families are made by blood, but friends are made by choice. And I'm closer to my friends than I could ever be with my family.

You *should* have love for them all, but sometimes there are bad seeds in families.

you have to love your family, it doesnt mean you have to like em though, there are exeptions though
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 12/5/07 - 4:30:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nah.
I'm not a fan of the thicker-than-water thing.
My direct family's a bunch of idiots and/or b*stards, why should I love them? They've done all they could to make my life a greater misery than their own so that's a definite no.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 12/5/07 - 10:23:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think that everyone does love their family, even if it's really, really deep down.
(but I could be wrong...)

I love my family, but I don't always *like* them.

14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 12/5/07 - 3:23:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
To an extent. Unless its creepy uncles, they dont need love.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 12/5/07 - 7:27:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sometimes. There's sibling love, which I think is very important.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 12/5/07 - 7:30:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yep. If there's more to them, you like them, as well.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 12/5/07 - 10:41:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
NO, that is just in the godfather, if you dont like them you dont have to be false with them

There's a difference between loving and liking, and it's not merely one of degree in all cases.
You should love your family just because they're family. They have to earn your "like."

yeh u love ur family coz they...ya kno, but isnt the reason why we even started loving them coz they are related????
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 12/7/07 - 11:08:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
I love them because they helped raise me and take care of me.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 12/9/07 - 2:24:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
That and because they're a lot of fun.
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 2/11/08 - 8:42:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
you have to love them but that dont mean you gotta like them.
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 2/11/08 - 8:48:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think it develops naturally. There are a few cases where you shouldn't love your family. Very few cases. They would have to be a special breed of awful.

There is very little that would make me stop loving my immediate family and even then I question if I would still love them. I think I might love them and hate them simultaneously.
