You Think You have Family Problems?

The other day I was standing next to two men at a bus stop. The two men struck up a conversation.
One of them kept complaining about family problems. Finally the other man said, "you think you have family problems? Listen to my situation."
"A few years ago I met a young widow with a grown up daughter and we got married. Later my father married my stepdaughter. That made my stepdaughter my stepmother and my father became my stepson.
Also my wife became mother in law of her father in law.
Then the daughter of my wife, my stepmother had a son. This boy was my half brother because he was my father's son but he was also the son of my wife's daughter, which made him my wife's grandson. That made me the grandfather of my half brother.
This was nothing until my wife and I had a son. Now the half sister of my son, my stepmother is also the grandmother. This makes my father the brother in law of my child, whose step sister is my fathers wife. Thus I am my stepmother's brother in law, my wife is her own child's aunt, my son is my father's nephew and I'm my own grandfather.
And you think you have family problems?"

I have never been confused like I did on that day
