Removed The relationships of cousins of different generations are explained by using the word "removed".
Cousins who are "once removed" have a one-generation difference.
The word double in addition to the first cousin term is because because they share the same four grandparents.
Regular first cousins share only one set of common grandparents, while double first cousins share both sets of grandparents plus all lineal and collateral relatives.
The idea of double dating is to have fun and get to know one another and our friend’s or family’s significant other.
