Very hard!

A man and a woman decide to get married. They aren't cousins, brother and sister, or mother and son, but they are related. How can this be?

Aw, what type of an answer is that!?

Re: Very hard!

Brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers are very close. To the children in the family, uncles and aunts are the sisters of their parents.
