    Fictive Kin: A term used to refer to individuals that are unrelated by either birth or marriage, who have an emotionally significant relationship with another individual that would take on the characteristics of a family relationship.

    其實這詞正是我們台灣人的人情圈子裡常常說的"乾爹媽","乾姐妹"等等的"乾"字輩情誼深厚的人,而這只要把樓上大大所提供的英文解釋看清楚就一目了然:

    "此詞用於指沒有血親或姻親關係,但情義關係上卻無異於親人的其他人"

    英文解釋單字:term:詞 / used to: 被用於 / refer to: 指 / individual: 個人 / unrelated by either birth or marraige: 不論在血緣或婚姻上都沒關係的 / emotionally significant: 情感上深刻重要的 / take on: 帶有 / characteristics: 特性 / family relationship: 親人關係

    虛構家族:用來指與出生或結婚無關的個體(人),他們與另一具有家庭關係特性,有一個感情上重大關係的個體(人)。

    fictive kin 是虛擬親人的意思.

    例如:

    夫妻倆位都在上班,

    沒時間照顧寶寶,

    於是請來一位保姆,

    這位專門照顧寶寶的褓母跟寶寶一點血緣都沒有,

    所以她就是虛擬親人.

    例如:

    王老爹沒有子女,他的晚年都由義工照顧,

    這名義工就是王老爹的虛擬親人.
