I think Barry's marriage ideas are pretty interesting. Characters
would also have to get old and die so you wouldn't have 10 generations
in your faction.

I suppose the problem is that there are a lot of mechanics involved
to support modeling real families, and I wonder if it would end up
being fun, i.e. worth it for all the complexity. It seems like the
parts of the simulation devote to modeling the family would take over.
I can see a family-simulation game, but not Olympia with families.
