  • Depends how you look at it. My husband is an only child, so am I. But I am Latina, and our family is very large and close knit, where his is not so much. He also came into our marriage as a step dad and I had children from a previous marriage, so my family was already bigger in that way too.

  • As for siblings....no. He's the oldest of 4 and I'm the baby of 4. As for cousins and such....yup. My mom is one of 9, my dad one of 5. Just my aunts, uncles and first cousins....we number over 100! And most of us in the same town or within 2 hours.

  • He has 3 siblings, I have 4 - so it's very comparable. I love it!

  • I think they're about the same size. My family just seems bigger to me because we're much more close knit and involved with each other than his family is. But we both have one sibling (sisters), and maybe the same amount of aunts/uncles/cousins? It's hard to say because there's a lot of his family members that I've never met.

  • No, my husband has four other sibilings and a ton of cousins that he grew up with. I have one adopted brother and never bonded with any of my cousins so my family is pretty small.

  • Well, we're both only children. But if you're talking extended family, yeah, my family is bigger. I have tons of cousins, most of whom are married and have kids of their own, plus second cousins, aunts, uncles, and so on. We practically need our own state to have a family reunion. lol
