Not real family, people group together for safety creating situational families.
Blood family relations do exist, for example: the sheriff (Rick), his son, and his wife are are one of the traditional families in the show.
Family like units are created from intense situations.
Relations between individuals are surprisingly closer than family members are in GOT.
