When the aunt is a cousin

For a big family with big gaps in the age of siblings, it is common to have a nephew or niece that is older than you, that is if your parent is the youngest in the brood. With the mention of a cousin, what comes to mind is someone who is of your age or contemporary. But when the cousin is much older and the child or children of a cousin is even older than you are then that is kind of strange to some people.

In the picture with me is my aunt who is my father’s first cousin. Since my father’s mother is the eldest and my aunt’s father is the youngest so there is a big age difference between cousins, my father and my aunt. Now that I am older than my aunt so we treat each other as cousins. Nothing wrong with that.
