How does the idea of "faction before blood" come into play throughought the book?

Do you think this idea has a place in today"s society, or is it contrary to what most people believe? In our Society, what ideas and beliefs are people loyal to in the way Tris's society is loyal to the concept of the factions?

Beatrice Prior must choose a faction. She hopes her test will tell her what faction she should be in. The decision will then be easy.Faction before blood is the saying which pretty much means one chooses their faction over family. When Beatrice ends up being "divergent" this conflict between faction and family plays out for the rest of the book.
