What is the title for someone you're related to but not actually related to in terms of DNA and stuff of that kind?
For instance: this beautiful
young woman whose birthday is today and who happens to be on a quick
trip to London from her home in Vancouver and so of course she came to
see me because not only are we sort of related but we also like each
other very much and she could, sort of, be my daughter because she is
the daughter of my ex-husband and his third wife - I was the second -
and her step-brother and sister are also, sort of, my step-children.
Well, whatever the title of our relationship, it's great and we had a
wonderful lunch at a local pub and talked of almost everything under the
sun, apart from the weather.
Although she looks like a teen-ager, Valerie is also a brilliant lawyer.
Maybe just "Friend" is enough. Those are the relatives you choose.
Yes, definitely friend, plus the extra bit that comes from having some portion of shared history.
She is definitely a lovely lass. That makes two of you.
Thank you, Bruce. You made my day.
