 TITLE 19 EDUCATION PART 2 TEXAS EDUCATION AGENCY CHAPTER 100 CHARTERS SUBCHAPTER AA COMMISSIONER'S RULES CONCERNING OPEN-ENROLLMENT CHARTER SCHOOLS DIVISION 5 CHARTER SCHOOL GOVERNANCE RULE §100.1113 Relationships By Consanguinity or By Affinity
 (a) Method of computing degree of relationship. The degree of a relationship is computed by the civil law method. (b) Determination of consanguinity. Two individuals are related to each other by consanguinity if one is a descendant of the other, or if they share a common ancestor. An adopted child is considered to be a child of the adoptive parent for this purpose. (c) Computation of degree of consanguinity. The degree of relationship by consanguinity between an individual and the individual's descendant is determined by the number of generations that separate them.   (1) A parent and child are related in the first degree, a grandparent and grandchild in the second degree, a great-grandparent and great-grandchild in the third degree, and so on.   (2) If an individual and the individual's relative are related by consanguinity, but neither is descended from the other, the degree of relationship is determined by adding:     (A) the number of generations between the individual and the nearest common ancestor of the individual and the individual's relative; and     (B) the number of generations between the relative and the nearest common ancestor.   (3) An individual's relatives within the third degree by consanguinity are the individual's:     (A) parent or child (relatives in the first degree);     (B) brother, sister, grandparent, or grandchild (relatives in the second degree); and     (C) great-grandparent, great-grandchild, aunt who is a sister of a parent of the individual, uncle who is a brother of a parent of the individual, nephew who is a child of a brother or sister of the individual, or niece who is a child of a brother or sister of the individual (relatives in the third degree). (d) Determination of affinity. Two individuals are related to each other by affinity if they are married to each other, or the spouse of one of the individuals is related by consanguinity to the other individual.   (1) The ending of a marriage by divorce or the death of a spouse ends relationships by affinity created by that marriage unless a child of that marriage is living, in which case the marriage is considered to continue as long as a child of that marriage lives.   (2) Paragraph (1) of this subsection applies only until the youngest child of the marriage reaches the age of 21 years. (e) Computation of degree of affinity. A husband and wife are related to each other in the first degree by affinity. For other relationships by affinity, the degree of relationship is the same as the degree of the underlying relationship by consanguinity.   (1) If two individuals are related to each other in the second degree by consanguinity, the spouse of one of the individuals is related to the other individual in the second degree by affinity.   (2) An individual's relatives within the third degree by affinity are:     (A) anyone related by consanguinity to the individual's spouse in one of the ways named in this section; and     (B) the spouse of anyone related to the individual by consanguinity in one of the ways named in this section.
