FamilyThe word family means relationship between people. They are connected by the marriage. The word kinship is the relationship between parents and their children. There are two types of living together as a family. The first type is the marriage. There are husband and wife. The second type is the cohabitation. People live together without a paper. They can have children. In our societies we live in monogamy families. But there are some countries in the world where men can have several wifes. The most common is the nuclear family. This is a small family where parents and their children live together. That means two generations. The next type is the extended family. There are some relatives, like grandparents, parents, children, siblings, uncles, aunts, cousins. There are a lot of single-parent families. It is mainly because of the divorces. When one of the parents is remarried we speak about the step-family. Children have step-fathers or step-mothers.
