Must be in a type of group to join other groups (ie. group joins groups)

We have a client that wants to group users as families and only allow the families to join groups.

We are pretty new to BuddyPress and aren't quite sure the best way to approach this. If there is no easy/cheap way to do this, we may just go with one user login = the family, but the client isn't super excited about that solution.

Is there a pre-made solution or something I'm missing because of my unfamiliarity with BP?

    Hi and Welcome to the WPMUdev Community!

    The best way you can go about this is to use the Buddypress feature for group privacy.

    If you have Groups enabled with all the bells and whistles then you will be able to see the options when you go to your Groups page and click Add New Group

    After you enter the group name and desc you are asked to choose a privacy level. The Hidden level will probably be just what you need. Just make sure that the groups are initially formed that way and you'll be good to go!
