Two men met at a bus stop and struck up a conversation. One of them kept complaining of family problems. Finally the other man said: "You think you have family problems? Listen to my situation.
A few years ago I met a young widow with a grown up daughter. We got married and I got myself a step-daughter. Later, my father married my step-daughter. That made my step daughter my step-mother. And my father became my step-son. Also my wife became mother-in-law of her father-in-law.
Much later the daughter of my wife, my step-mother, had a son.
This boy was my half brother because he was my father's son.
But he was also the son of my wife's daughter which made him my wife's grand-son. That made me the grandfather of my half brother. This was nothing until my wife and I had a son.
Now the half sister of my son, my brother-in-law of my child, whose step-sister is my father's wife. I am my step-mother's brother-in-law, my wife is her own child's aunt, and my son is my father's nephew and I am my OWN GRAND FATHER. And you think you have FAMILY PROBLEMS.
