The White Paper for Social Welfare (GN 1 108 in GG 18166 of 8 August 199793) defines "family" as: "individuals who either by contract or agreement choose to live together intimately and function as a unit in a social and economic system. The family is the primary social unit which ideally provides care, nurturing and socialisation for its members". However, in modern society it must be accepted that the nuclear family, consisting of a father and a mother and their children, does not constitute the norm as it may have before.
