It’s easy to notice that the number of children by generation trends to decrease, mainly because of China’s one-child policy which creates a huge gap regarding the population by generation within my big family. We can see that each of my cousin, as well as myself, have several aunts, uncles, and grandparents. However, my uncles and aunts experience more complicated relationships than I did. In other words, each of my last generation gives birth to only one child, while they have 4 to 6 siblings. What another thing comes to my mind was the increasing divorce rate. I see no divorces among my grand-generation, but it started to appear between my parents and some of my uncles and aunts. It is hard to exercise the trends because all of my cousins aren’t married yet. The last point I’d like to make is that the men-women ratio. I have to admit that the cliche tradition in China making people admire boys more results an unbalanced sex ratio, unacceptable but true.
