is defined as relationship to the tie established following consanguinity, adoption, marriage, affinity or other stable bond based on genuine affection. It is, therefore, relationships that can be triggered by biological factors or not and that are organized according to lines that allow multiple degrees to be recognized.
Two individuals They can be relatives for three basic situations: consanguinity, affinity or adoption. The first of those mentioned is determined by blood inheritance and is achieved, then, when there is at least one ascendant in common. The proximity of this kind of kinship is determined based on the number of generations that opens a certain gap between the people in question.
From a legal point of view, the concept is taken into account when carrying out certain procedures related to issues of inheritance, social benefits, compensation, etc. In this perspective, kinship is calculated taking into account the number of generations that separate the two involved in this process. In this way, each generation it is taken into account as a degree, and the sum of the successive degrees forms the line of succession.
The line blood relationship can be:
* straight: allows you to identify the degrees that separate the subjects from each other. Can be of type upward (when you connect an individual with whom you descend directly: great-grandfather-grandfather-father) or falling (associates the ancestor with those who descend directly and successively: great-great grandson-grandson);
* collateral: focuses on the series of degrees that exists among those with the same ascendant, but that do not descend from each other. For example, the case of brothers and cousins.
In turn, a distinction can be found between kinship by affinity (relationship established with members of the family itself) and by consanguinity (with respect to the spouse's family or with the spouses of any member of their own family).
Finally, the concept can be used to talk about the union or link that is established between different things. An example of kinship of this type is that established between football and rugby; these are two sports that at first glance are widely different, but that have similarities either in certain rules of the game as in others aspects What do your organization do?
