This is my kinship chart. I want to analyze my maternal relationship first. My grandparents have four offsprings, and they are all female include my mom. My mom’s youngest sister passed away about 10 years ago due to congenital disease. The rest two siblings of her both get married and give birth to male offspring.
For my paternal relationship, my grandparents have three offspring, two boys and one girl. My auntie and my uncle both get married and I have two female cousins from each of them. Because the previous one-child policy of China, my cousins and I are all so called –the only child. Our ethic is very simple because all family members belong to the Han nationality, which is the main nationality of China. My two youngest brothers both have huge age difference with me. This phoneme may suggest the tendency of late marriage and childbirth.I notice an interesting thing that is I am the only girl of the third generation in my big family. This is a social microcosm—the number of female is far less than male in China, which means many males will be the bachelor.
