    ...on either side of the family. And do you have a relationship with them?

    I personally have 13 cousins; 5 on my mum's side, 8 on my dad's. I have only really ever had a relationship with 3 of my cousins from my mum's side, and at present I talk to none of my cousins on her side due to family issues

    I get on really well with my dad's side - two of them live walking distance from me and I talk to them more days a week than not. 5 of them I have intermittent contact with due to circumstances/living abroad, and the other 1 I see maybe 5 or 6 times a year because she lives 30 miles away from me, but it's all good between us.

    Literally none since my mum is an only child and I don't know my dad's side.

    None on my Mum's side cause she's an only child, but 5 on my Dad's. Two of them live in Tenerife, one in Holland and the other two are actually fairly close but my Dad doesn't bother getting in touch with his brothers so we never see them
