Is Family a legitimate form of Government? Well, let’s start by looking at the definition of Government.
Government: The governing body of a nation, state, or community.
As far as I am concerned, the Family is a body. The Man of the family is the head. He makes the overall decisions and cannot make them without the wife’s approval. The man and wife need to work together throughout everything. The children’s decisions matter too, but not as drastically as the parents. One cannot work without the other. So my answer is yes, the Family is a legitimate form of Government.
