A choice family refers to a family with
members who intend to treat each other as such. Blood relations are
not required. Members just have to love, support, and respect each
other as family would. The ties that bind a choice family are not
physiological or genetic. A choice family is an intentional family of
people who choose to co-habitate as one. In the context of sex, it can be seen in most of the various forms of intimacy. For instance, a polyamorous group could be considered a choice family. A gay person could choose to consider people outside of their blood relations to be their family.
