Sally:'Here are some photos of my family. This is a photo when all my family were together 3 years ago for my mother's birthday.'
Peter:'So, are all the people in the photo your relatives? Members of your family?'
Sally:'Most of them are my family or partners of members of my family. Some of the people in it are also my mother's friends.'
Peter:'Is that your father next to your mother?'
Sally:'No. My father isn't in the photo. My mother re-married 15 years ago and that man is my stepfather Bill, the husband of my mother. And that young man next to him is his son from a different marriage, my stepbrother Paul.'
Peter:'I can see your brothers and sisters. That's your brother Tim, your brother Mike and that's your sister Rebecca.'
Sally:'Yeah, they are my siblings.'
Peter:'Sorry to ask this, but do you and your siblings all have the same mother and father?'
Sally:'We all have the same mother, but Mike has a different father to the rest of us. His father is Bill, my stepfather.'
Peter:'So Mike is your half brother?'
Peter:'So, who is the man next to your sister Rebecca?'
Sally:'My brother-in-law Gary. The husband of my sister Rebecca.'
Peter:'And the woman stood next to him?'
Sally:'That was my sister-in-law Jessica. The wife of my brother Tim at the time.'
Peter:'But your brother Tim doesn't have a wife now!'
Sally:'That's right. They divorced about a year ago. So now she's his ex-wife.'
Peter:'So, who is the young man stood next to you in the photo?'
Sally:'That's my second cousin Richard.'
Peter:'Second cousin? What does that mean?'
Sally:'He's the child of one of my mother's cousins.'
Peter:'I didn't think it was a relative of yours. I thought it was your boyfriend. You both look that you are in love.'
Sally:'You think so! I was single at the time when the photo was taken. So I didn't have a boyfriend or partner.'
Peter:'And the young woman next to him?'
Sally:'That was his girlfriend Ruth at the time. But since the photo they have got married, so she's now his wife.'
