These relationships standards are to be unidirectionally proposed. They could also be freely modified to match your own idea of what are the relationship rights and duties that any family member should have. This finally serves for giving more clarity and meaningfulness to which kind of relationship we have with others, and for altogether define what a family really is, i.e.

What being a mom really binds for? What people here thinks a mom is?

MyFamily says me that you are 44% mum, 32% partner, 22% granny, 4 % cousin of me: What does it say to you about me? Why do you have keep that information private to me?

WHY

As any life, we can’t survive by ourselves only, we always need others, whether is for self reflecting ourselves in them and-or for sharing personal care and material things with close people we more care about and let them interact with us. Such local organizations of limited trustful groups of people naturally show up in our life time as Friends, Mates, Comrades or more formally speaking as Families.

With «MyFamily» as «the» keyword for such an interactive app we want to reinforce (give more quality to) the reality of some key groupings and agreements done between people on-through a virtual app. MyFamily contracts signed in a platform should render a quicker increase of quality of real life.

Since a family is a very lovely expresion of a human local reality, the family lineaging shouldn’t be dependant in a couple deciding to have a children, nor in a set of closed rights guaranteed by some centralised conventional authority. We do have more special relationships with friends that are not in our «blood lineage». For example, some of us sometimes call some friends of us as «Brother» o love them more than we love to our bloody brother, so why not to extend this lovely trend for being more ourselves, having fun and sharing easier with others?

Using the word «Family» naturally pushes us to it. It normallises the more formalized proposed rights and duties to enjoy between close affinities. We want to respect the height and autonomy of the word Family while decentralising and crowdsourcing its meaning. We don’t foresee any trouble that MyFamily could bring to your bloody lineaged family, we just can expect your mum being more happy about you being more cared by others and-or you knowing better what to be a mum could be. Maybe MyFamily incentivates your mom to be a better mom to you too, because you will be having other competing virtual moms… who knows? at least we wish such scenario happily worrilessly.
