Frequently Asked Questions

These are the most popular questions about all you need to know about your cousins and how you should interact with them:

1. What Should I Caption a Photo with My Cousin?

  • “Cousins are friends that will love you forever.”
  • “Cousins by blood—friends by choice.”
  • “A cousin is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.”
  • “Cousin to cousin we’ll always be, special friends from the same family tree.”

2. What can I Write about My Cousin? A cousin is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost. They will always hold a special place in your heart even when you grow up and grow apart. I wish we could spend more time together! A cousin is like a second shot at having a sibling.

3. What is special about cousins? “Cousins are important because they share blood, no matter if they are first or distant cousins,” Arakelian says. “Going forward, they are legacies of ancestors who set the course for the future and remind us of our perseverance, will, strength, and courage.”

4. Is it good to have cousins? Cousins become vital when you lose some of your closest family, such as your mother, father, brother, or sister. Cousins help to fill in the gap and remind you that you have not lost all of your family because they still got you. Cousins can be that extra love and support you need.

5. Why cousins are better than siblings? When you need a little advice or just someone to talk to, cousins are the perfect people to turn to because they know you as well (or almost as well) as a sibling, but they’ll talk to you more like a best friend.

6. How do I compliment my cousin?

  • “Sorry I’m late to hang out because I’m busy obsessing over this photo.”
  • “BRB, going to frame this pic.”
  • “All the good looks come from our side of the family, obv.”
  • “I adore you.”
  • “You slayed this pic.”
  • “Hang this in the Louvre!”

7. What is the role of a cousin? Cousins will be there to talk with you, laugh with you, and shade you when you need it most. Cousins become vital when you lose some of your closest family, such as your mother, father, brother, or sister. Cousins help to fill in the gap and remind you that you have not lost all of your family because they still got you.

8. Do kids need cousins? In fact, cousins play a vital role in a child’s development and social interactions. Family gatherings are an important part of growing up.

9. What is my cousin's child to me? From the angle of family history, your cousin's child is your first cousin once removed, yet the normal name of your sibling’s children to call them by is your niece or nephew. They would call you aunt or uncle, and your kids might essentially call them cousins. Even though obviously, they are truly second cousins.

10. Are cousins blood-related? Just about any other blood relative who is not your sibling, ancestor, aunt, or uncle is your cousin. To determine your degree of cousinhood—first, second, third, etc. —you need to identify the ancestor you share with your cousin and how many generations separate each of you from that ancestor.

11. Can first cousins marry? For example, many cultures encourage first cousin marriage to strengthen familial relationships. In the United States, second cousins are legally allowed to marry in every state. However, marriage between first cousins is legal in only about half of the American states.

We often cherish memories of vacations spent with our cousins, creating moments that we can never forget. These compilations resonate with those beautiful memories among cousins.
