Igbo Household Segmentation
The lineage segments into two groups according to sets of brothers
- (E and F) and (G and H) - from the same mother.

grow according to the standard rules.
F takes a second wife
K's sons marry and bring in wives, while her daughter marries out.
P's son marries and starts a new generation, while her daughter marries
E's sister's son moves in with his wife and child
