Difficulty: 2 of 5 Latest: Family Affair
AFFAIR is the second word in a common two-word phrase where the first word is "family". Five other words that can fill the blank in "Family _____" are DOCTOR, FRIEND, JEWELS, LAWYER and SECRET.

Place these six words, capitalized above, into the grid below, one per row, keeping the five letters already filled in in place, such that one of the columns spells out a word, top to bottom, that is a clue to a ten-letter word that also can follow "family" in a common phrase.

What is the ten-letter word thus clued?
