☆   relationship  人間関係


There are three words that you can used to refer to people or to the connections between people: relationship – relation – relative.

A relationship between two people or groups is the way that they are connected, or the way that they feel about each other. For example, Australia and New Zealand have a friendly relationship. Or, we resumed our relationship easily after many years of not seeing each other.

You can use “relations” in a similar way: to refer to the contact between people or groups and the way they behave toward each other. For example, the East-West relations continued to deteriorate.

Your relations and relatives are the members of your family.
