Whenever there is lasting love there is a family
"Every family is a 'normal' family - no matter whether it has one parent, two or no children at all. A family can be made up of any combination of people, heterosexual or homosexual, who share their lives in an intimate (not necessarily sexual) way. ... Wherever there is lasting love, there is a family."
Shere Hite also said: "Fortunately the family is a human institution: humans made it and humans can change it."
