By Ira Leidel: We heard of Ten Types of Families from a family therapist, Patricia Ebersole Zwier. The family types seem to be very universal and not merely limited to the Caribbean Islands. She talked of the role of the church to help families grow closer to God in any of the family types; whether they were a Centipede Family (one father with a wife and a multiple series of mistresses), Salad Family (a powerful woman heading the family and men enter and leave), and even a Ghost Family (living as is the deceased member is still alive.)
