Mission Impossible?

Trying to find an all singing, all dancing, all polished teeth and happy smiles type nuclear family in the bible.

Adam and Eve? Well they were the first. They gave birth to Cain and Abel. Hold on a minute. Cain murders Abel does he not? It seems the good old “nuke family” was pretty much screwed from the start then.

Other than that God’s blessed ones in the OT were polygamous, whilst Christ and Paul were both celibates.

If the nuclear family was the Almighty’s sole intention for the whole of mankind then he has a pretty strange way of showing it.

Not that I have issues with the idea. I support marriage in all its forms as a stabilising force in society in general. I just see no reason to impose a wholly fictional weight of largely wish fulfillment type meaning on scriptures which clearly do not support them.
