This is a study examining levels of solidarity among full-, step-, and half-sibling groups in remarried families in the United States. This study relies on three sources of data: observations in a series of Blended Family Workshops; a 'Family of Orientation' assignment in which college students reflect upon their siblings and the family in which they were raised; and, the General Social Survey (1986, 1994, and 2002). The results demonstrate that high divorce and remarriage rates have created a more fluid definition of kinship.
