Law/Patents
Portuguese term or phrase: "afinidade"
Hi there!
Could you please help me on this one? I believe it was taken out of the Portuguese Civil Code. I know what the word means, but what I want is the exact English equivalent in this context (legal). So, this is the context:

"o vínculo familiar nasce no casamento, adopção (...) e afinidade".

Thank you very much to all of you who try to help me. Thank you very much.
