Everyone is related to Africa; everyone comes from Africa. We are all distant relatives.
One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.
I have a theory of relatives, too. Don't hire 'em.
Ah! That must be Aunt Augusta. Only relatives, or creditors, ever ring in that Wagnerian manner.
My relatives used to laugh when I talked of being a writer.
I created my MySpace page in eighth grade, because that's how all my friends talked to each other, so I made one, too. Then, all of a sudden, my friends started putting my songs on their profiles, and then their relatives, their friends in different states did.

I was always a drama queen. I remember playing in the kitchen, trying to get my mom to think I was dead and call the police. When she didn't, I would cry. I was always theatrical. I don't think any of my relatives are surprised.
Close friends and relatives, while not meaning to do so, often handicap on through 'opinions' and sometimes though ridicule, which is meant to be humorous.

To retaliate against the relatives of the co-religionists of the wrong-doer is a cowardly act.

It's odd how a person always arouses admiration for his moral qualities among the relatives of another with whom he has sexual relations.
