cousins

I have decided that my family is big. I have over 60 first cousins. On just my Mom's side. That is with no divorces and no 2nd marriages so no step-cousins or half-cousins or anything else to make it confusing. If you want to get confusing, my Grandma on that side remarried after my Grandpa died, and I could add in a couple dozen step cousins but I don't know any of them so I ain't countin' 'em! On my Dad's side, it's a little more tame...I think I only have 16 cousins on that side (again, no divorces or things like that). So my first question to you is: can you top 76 first cousins without counting any step cousins? My second question is: how weird is it that there are no divorces out of 13 aunts and uncles and only 1 divorce out of 76 first cousins? WEIRD I tell you!

And people wonder why I can't keep all their dang names straight. grumble mumble......

Are you counting the children of your aunts and uncles only or are you counting their spouses as well?

Just the children of my aunts and uncles. I can't even come close to counting their spouses....

WOW! That's impressive! I don't even have that many. I only have 36 and I thought I had a big family!

What's up cousin?
I was perusing our latest family phone book from last reunion and, don't forget, I think you now have 20 cousins once-removed on your dad's side; you know, cousins' kids. Second cousins? Anyway, I have more cousins than you on my dad's side because you and Tony, Joey & Co. are my cousins; but on my mom's side I only have ... 5.
