My mother’s side of the family is larger as they have many 2nd and 3rd generations and some even having children after that. A trend I’ve noticed is that the all the fourth generation from my mother’s side are all boys. My family is made up of all Chinese origin people. My mother’s brothers and sisters had to help out with the chores and housework, so having more children helped lessen the burden. My family is spread out all over the country and in China, so I don’t speak to many of them, only my mother does over the phone. All of my mother and father’s siblings are married, and all have had children of their own. In my family there are no divorces and everyone has stayed together so far.
