You should be glad they relate to you that way.
It means you're so loved.

You are not only married to your hubby, but to all his family. He should explain better to you.

grin grin grin

That's the norm...you are their wife cos you bear the family name. Welcome to the clan babes, your children will be "our kids" too grin

For any marriage to take place in most African settings, the family of the groom actually goes to the bride's family to seek their daughter's hand. That might not have been in your case but you are welcomed to the family non the less.
