Know The Difference Between Step Brother/Sister And Half Brother/Sister




When i was growing up, I use to hear people use these phrases (My step brother/sister, My half brother/sister), I didn't know the difference.

At a point i thought they meant the same thing, i never knew the difference until i decided to go find out. I started asking adults around me, some will say they are the same and that one can use anyone that suit me. Some said they don't know the difference.

After much pondering, i went ahead to find out myself, i checked the dictionary and discovered that there is huge difference, I also went online.

Now i want to share with you, because i still see people making that mistake.

First lets get to know what a sibling means.

WHO IS YOUR SIBLING?

Your sibling is that person that shares the same parent/parents with you. That's your brother or sister.

WHO IS YOUR HALF BROTHER?

your half brother is any male sibling that shares one parent with you. You are related by blood but only share one parent, either you have different fathers but share the same mother, or you have different mothers and share the same father.

WHO IS YOUR HALF SISTER?


your half sister is any female sibling that shares one parent with you. You are related by blood but only share one parent, either you have different fathers but share the same mother, or you have different mothers and share the same father.

WHO IS YOUR STEP BROTHER?


Your step brother is the son of your step father or step mother. He is not the son of your mother and is not the son of the father. That means you are not related by blood, you are related by marriage.

WHO IS YOUR STEP SISTER?


Your step brother is the daughter of your step father or step mother. She is not the daughter of your mother and is not the daughter of the father. That means you are not related by blood, you are related by marriage.

WHO IS YOUR STEP FATHER?


Your step father is your mothers husband, who is not your father so he is not related to you by blood, but by marriage.

WHO IS YOUR STEP MOTHER?


Your step mother is your fathers wife, who is not your mother so she is not related to you by blood, but by marriage.
