"Family Man" is a song by Fleetwood Mac from their 1987 album Tango in the Night. It was written by Lindsey Buckingham and Richard Dashut. In the USA, the song was released as the fifth single from the album as the follow-up to "Everywhere". It charted in March 1988, and reached #90 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart.

In the UK, it was released as the fourth single following "Little Lies" and charted at #91 on 19 December 1987, going on to peak at #54 on 19 January 1988. "Family Man" was released as a special Limited Edition box set featuring the 7" single, plus two prints by Susan Young and Christine Tongue. The 12" included several mixes of "Family Man" as well as the album track, "You and I, Part 2". It is also thought to be one of the first Fleetwood Mac singles to be featured on the CD single format, with 1-track promo-copies of the original album version known to be in existence.

The song is also featured on both the UK and US versions of the 2002 release The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac.
