Just by starting off, I knew that my kinship chart to represent my family was going to be long. I have a huge family from both my mom’s and dad’s side. From my dad’s side, he has ten siblings total. I mainly have uncles and there is only one female, which is my aunt. On my mom’s side, she has fewer siblings than my dad, but there is still a significant amount. She had three siblings, and including her are four total. I have one uncle and two aunts on my mom’s side. Excluding cousins because I have too many to count, I noticed that there are some trends that my kinship chart expresses. For starters, my grandparents from my dad’s side are separated. Although they are not together anymore, they are still siblings and not a blended family. Then when you get to my parents, they are divorced and it is shown on the kinship chart. From there, it is just me and my younger brother. I am the red colored circle. Although I could say that divorce is more common now than it was back 40 or 50 years ago, it was still happening. My grandparents raised my uncles and aunts very traditionally where the males were to work and earn money and the females were to clean and do chores. However, my mom’s side is more “modernized” because they were born in the United States. They speak English fluently and earned an education here. Where as on my dad’s side, they were all born in Mexico. However, all of my uncles and aunt attended college and earned a degree there. So yes, times have changed and more couples and families are getting divorced. But overall, education and separation hasn’t changed much throughout the three generations in my family. From lecture 4.1, it mentioned these rules about marriage and how time has affected change. This does correlate with my family, but in the end, it just goes to show that not everything changes depending on the generation itself. Exogamy relates to my family more because my parents married from two completely different worlds. They were raised differently and learned different things. However, both of my grandparents from both sides of my family married from their communities because they grew accustomed to it. My kinship chart resembles a large family with different trends that are based on different generations.
