Joint Family:A different kind of joint family
2014-02-16
Name: James Stock Hi this is my first post. My reason for coming to this forum to see the stories of others who live like me and to help those cant adapt to this lifestyle. So let me tell you my story.Usually in a joint family, a man tends to live with his male siblings and their spouses along with their children grandchildren and occasionally their parents. My life is rather different. My joint family composes of both sides of my immediate family,several members of my extended family and a few close friends. We also have another relative who lives like this right next door. My father, the youngest of 5 children lives with all his siblings who thne have their spouses, children in laws and grandchildren along with my paternal grandmother, her 2 sister inlaws and her uncle. My mum has 6 of her 10 siblings 3 of whom are single and only 2 have children. Also my maternal grandmother moved in with her sister,and her sister in law who has her son,daugher inlaw grandson and her daughter in laws mother living in as well. Another family unit that moved in was my fathers oldest niece who has her child and husband along with his patents and grandfather. To keep things brief when you move in you' ll have at least one child,grandchild, parent and sibling. Hopefully you guys enjoy my story as I will keep uploading more of my experiences living like this. Also if you like I will post an entire list of people living in my house.
