Familial love is unconditional love; your parents are essentially obligated to ‘love’ their children, (and to a lesser extent, brothers are supposed to love sisters and other siblings/family etc.). All other types of love are “decided upon” in my opinion. So yes, OP, you CAN love your family, but it is certainly a different brand of love than would be shared with a spouse or even a friend. Again though, these are just my opinions and you may agree or disagree at your choosing.
