Default Re: Cousin by half blood or cousin via marriage

I wish to inform you that purpose of determining closest cousin will determine which one is more close as applicable laws can be applied only after purpose is known. In this regard generally in closest cousin both half blood and cousin through fathers sister will have same place if relation of parent of children is same with the persons parent. Closeness of cousin is seen from the closeness with which one shares one ancestors. Generally cousin denotes term that there is a common ancestor. In this if a person is related through brother or sister of a persons parent then they will be closest cousin.
