Some people think that a cousin is just a brother of ones father or mother but I believe and the webster dictionary believes that it is also the husband of ones aunt. I believe that when a person gets married they are married into the person they are marrying's family. What do you believe?

I believe a cousin is the son or daughter of your aunt or uncle, regardless of whether they've simply married your uncle or aunt or not.

I am Canadian, and I define my cousins as the children of my Aunts and Uncles. Their children would then become my second cousins etc. Hope this makes sense .. :)
