Family Relationships | The Importance of Cousins

Why Cousins Are Special and Their Roles in Our Lives

Question: What is the importance of cousins relationship?

Answer: For individuals who have no brothers and sisters, cousins fill the sibling gap.

Those in our age group provide companionship and social support. The older ones tell stories about our grandparents and share their memories of historical family events. The younger ones pull at our heartstrings and bring out the love we still have to share.


These are the relationship benefits that my cousins and I enjoy. A gathering of cousins is among the most precious of life's events.


Most cousins in other families have a similar experience concerning their grandparents—the oldest ancestor some of them know. The most comprehensive set of information we can obtain about our ancestors and our family history will have to be contributed by our cousins. If for no other reason than establishing our history, we have to admit that our cousins are special.

A cousin is a ready-made friend for life.
