Traditional family values, or family values, is "a political and social concept or term that has been used in various nations across the world to describe a set of moral beliefs in society specifically in response to the perception by social or religious conservatives of declining morality within that nation itself" [1]. "The term is vague in its precise definition as many different groups have claimed that it means different things. As such, 'family values' has been described as a political buzzword or power word," according to the Wikipedia, which defines family values thusly:

"The concept of 'family values' is rooted in each individual culture thus making the values different for different societies. In addition, cultures change over time in response to economic, political, and cultural developments. Therefore, 'family values' vary from household to household, from country to country, and from generation to generation." [2]
