        Yeah, I know that, but why are they saying that person does not have to be a
        relative... my wife doesn't get on with her family and before we got
        married, or if we didn't get married, I'm sure she'd prefer me to come to
        the hospital instead of her "relatives"... I think the sentence was trying
        to accomodate for that, even if it used the wrong word (kin) - possibly
        because somebody was sensible and saw that a partner can be your "closest
        person" without you being married to them - it was just a thought, but I
        don't see any other way to explain the conflict between the two sentences...
