This is a mind boggling topic but we were wondering what our girl should be calling my husband's cousins. My girl calls his cousin's father as 老舅， so I assume should be 舅舅? However we were also told his cousins are like his brothers so must be 伯伯 and 叔叔。 I thought only 堂哥/弟 then is considered 伯/叔。 Any takers?
Hi! Thanks for replying! So do you mean my daughter should call his cousins 表舅?
Ic.. cik cik's father it's lao gu 老舅 right?
Yes,at 1st we were confuse too,but after the explanation,now understand ....hee
