Are you from a big family? Do you have a lot of uncles, aunts, cousins, siblings?

I am, I have a large family on my dad's side and on my mother's side. My mom's parents had eight children who are all 50+ now, with children and grandchildren of their own. My dad's grandmother had seven children, and those children have great grandchildren. I come from a very big family. Do you?

  • I have/had:

    3 uncles from my father's side (2 of them passed away though).

    13 aunts from my father's side (6 of them passed away when they were young and I have never seen them).

    6 uncles from my mother's side ( one of them passed away when he was 2 months old, neither I nor my mother saw him).

    As for cousins, I'm not gonna count, but I would say at least 100. The oldest is 50 years old, the youngest are 6 years old ( a twin).

    3 brothers ( 2 of them passed away)

    And finally 3 sisters.

    Yeah, that's what it feels like to be an Arab 😅

    • Oh and I forget, 3 aunts from my mother's side too.

    • Oh wow, you have experienced a lot of death. I have lost family bUT not to this extent. Coping with the loss of close family members is hell. Also, that is the curse of having a big family. Sorry for all your loss...

    • Ah, that sounds like my husband family structure. It is more intimate when smaller. I am so use to the big family structure, everyone is always talking, which means you learn the skill of talking over people. Rude, right?

    • haha! I just stop talking! My mom like always yelling and I am like ughhhhH! LEAVE ME ALONE WOMEN! hahahah Than when I ask her something I got like speak over her convo with my stepdad! etc. but we do have a bigger family than the small unit! haha!

  • I have just one brother and one cousin but I have no idea how many 1st cousins once removed I have since both my grandmother and grandfather (from my dad's side) had several brothers and sisters.

  • Yes, I have many cousins, the oldest ones have children already. Not so many uncles, just 5, but each one of them (except one) have more than 1 child, so when you gather everyone there are a lot of people.
