Intentional Family

Definition - What does Intentional Family mean?

An intentional family refers to a group of people who decide to be a family and adopt mindsets and actions that support this decision. This group of people can be made up of actual blood relations, such as parents and their children. They can also be made up of unrelated people who decide to co-habitate and treat each other as family. An example would be a polyamorous group who decide to live together.

Kinkly explains Intentional Family

At the core of an intentional family is intention. Members of the family must make a conscious effort to think and do what's good for the family. This may be as basic as doing one's assigned chores or eating dinners together. It could be more complex, such as sharing expenses and being inclusive when it comes to all members of the family.
