The four of us – my sister and I, and the two boys – spent all our school holidays together, and we all had dark hair.So when people asked if my “brothers” wanted an ice cream too, I’d have to take a deep breath and explain – in the long-suffering way that only a ten-year-old can – that they weren’t actually my “brothers” but my “second cousins once removed”.English is sometimes irritatingly vague when it comes to kinship terminology, even within fairly close family relationships.I can’t tell (without more context) if your brother-in-law is your sister’s husband or your husband’s brother.Typically, the reaction would be one of deep befuddlement (particularly from other children: “removed from what??”) Meanwhile, anyone vaguely familiar with the workings of kinship would hazard tentatively, “But if they’re once removed…why are they the same age as you?He says he never found out whether it was a first, second, third cousin or even more remote. The rapper and the woman are still close, and he has no regrets and feels no weirdness about their relationship.
First, though, let’s look at the pedigree of the word cousin itself.Kevin just went on TMZ Live to clarify what he posted a few days back ...that he was dating a woman a few years ago and after 3 months his grandma told him the lady was his cousin. they began dating in 2006 and continued dating for nearly 2 years after finding out.The family relationships in The Sims are very simple.Two Sims are either members of the same family, or they aren't, and all Sims who live in the same house are considered part of the same family.Like my question is asking, are they marrying their own cousin?
