Abstract


In Sociology as well as in ordinary usage the term family is used in the sense of a household as well as of a wider kinship unit whose members may live in more than one household. Family has been operating as an effective social security system. The requirements of hospitality and sharing of material resources with less fortunate kinsmen is almost a necessity in an economically under developed society "Thus the essential nature of family responsibility is that it is the acceptance of responsibility without a sense of obligation." (A.D. Ross).
