How Important are Family Members in Our Life?

“Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family members” - this quote is absolutely true when it comes to our family. Family members are those who will ride with you till the end without any judgments. We must value them and be grateful to them.

In this context, we will be talking about the common structure of a family and the family members' names. The article especially attempted to guide the students to identify the different family members who are generally there in a family. 

Nuclear Family and Extended Family

Our own family members can also be called relatives. Depending on the size of the family, we have a nuclear family and an extended family. The nuclear family or immediate family consists of your mother, father, and your loving siblings. An extended family consists of the people of your father’s or mother’s family. 

Coined Family Terms

Do you know who your siblings are? Siblings are your sisters and brothers born of your own parents. The term parent denotes father or mother. A child is the daughter or son of the parents. And, spouse means a husband or wife. 

Related by Marriage and Related by Blood

Your mother and father are related by marriage, this is so because they are tied with the vows of marriage. While you and your father or you and your mother or even your siblings are related by blood. This is so because your father and mother gave birth to you or your siblings, thus sharing the same blood. 

Generation in Family

In a family, generation is a term that is used to identify all those people who are at one level of the family. Like your grandparents belong to the older generation, your parents come in the mid-generation, while you and your siblings come in the younger generation and so on.

Generation is a collective term that is used for the people who are born and surviving at the same time, roughly.
