Family is an important institution in the formation of a society. In traditional society, family functions as a driving force in economic, social, education and religion. Its members work together or help each other in productive activities, along with educating children in matters relating to the good life skills or religious matters. Although work activities are divided according to gender, all family members and relatives provide each other their mutual assistance, especially during sad moments of distress or death or happy occasions such as marriage. This is not surprising because many family members are living in or near the same village. Current relationship based on traditional family ties are eroding due to modernization followed by urbanization of traditional society.
