Family Members Vocabulary in English

A family is a group of people who are related to each other by blood, marriage, or adoption. The most common family unit is the nuclear family, which consists of a mother, a father, and their children. Other family structures include extended families, which consist of grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins, and single-parent families, which consist of a parent and his or her children. A family is the basic unit of a society. The members of the family are mostly genetically tied relatives and and they share the same surname. As a result family members live together.
