This is my kinship chart. From this chart, we can see that my mother is from a minority family – Manchu. I showed all Manchu member in red color. From maternal relations, my grandparents are both Manchu, because in that time, Manchu only allowed to marry people from same ethnic. By this reasons, my grandparents are Manchu. With change of social consciousness, Manchu and other ethnic people are allowed to marry. So my mother and her brothers and sisters can choose spouses from different ethnic groups, which is Han. In Chinese law, if parents from different ethnic groups, their children have right to choose own ethnic. By this reason, me and my cousins have different ethnic, Manchu and Han, like kinship chart shows. My greatest cousin was married and had a son.
My paternal relationship is very straightforward, all members are from Han, expect me. My father and his brothers and sisters all married and have children. And one of my cousin also married and have a son. All my family members have stable marriage, the longest over 25 years
