I like the analysis done in AgRelOn, see MTSR 2012 paper (p222).
It abstracts away the gender (to reduce combinatorial complexity) and analyzes the rest hierarchically (e.g. professional vs familial relations).

There are inter-dependent fields that need to be kept in sync
- the type of group and the P107.1 props need to be correlated. If the P107 props are specific, maybe one can skip the type of group :-)
  Something like this: if a group has P107_1_mother and P107_2_father and P107_3_child, then its P2_has_type is "family".
- the group is a short-cut for life events, as shown in C.E.Ore's presentation
