Which one is the correct equivalent of "I've always been the rebel of the family"?

A-I've always rebelled against my family.
B-I've always been the rebel of starting a family.

Thank you.

    I agree, neither A nor B quite fits.

    I have always been a rebel, unlike the other members of my family. We don't know what "I" rebels against but I think it suggests a generally rebellious attitude both to one's family and to things outside it.
