"Suddenly I realized - two people isn't enough. You need backup. If you're only two people, and someone drops off the edge, then you're on your own. Two isn't a large enough number. You need three at least."

Hillary Clinton said something like "It takes a village to raise a child." And Krishnamurti called the nuclear family system that "ugly enclosed unit." I tend to agree. Although it won't happen, tribal living seems the most practical and nurturning for all concerned.
