"The term “family” refers to the basic sociological unit. The term has been used to denote two or more people staying together and related to each other by blood or marriage. The composition, size and structure (in terms of roles and statuses) has undergone a change across time and culture. There have been large families including grandparents, parents, children, uncles, aunts and cousins (all staying together as a joint family); and small families which comprise just parents with their children (nuclear family). Roles and statuses have also changed, with both men and women taking active part in making purchase decisions, and women playing roles which were earlier reserved for men and vice versa. Thus, the family as a social unit has varied in composition and structure, as well as the roles played by family members.

Client behavior will be the research of men and women, organizations, or maybe businesses and also the functions they will use to pick out, safeguarded, and also dump merchandise, solutions, experiences, or ideas to meet desires plus the effects that these operations have on the consumer along with modern society.
