कितनी महिलाएं, कितने पुरुष... (How many males and females...)

सबसे पहले, यह पहेली सिर्फ English में रखने के लिए माफी चाहता हूं...

I am sorry for providing you all with this question in English only...

Special Note: If you succeed in solving this one, well and good; but in case, you don't, just leave a comment, and I will mail the answer to you...

'A' is the father of two children - 'B' and 'D' who are of different sexes (genders)...

'C' is 'B's spouse (husband or wife)...

'E' is the same sex (gender) as 'D'...

'B' and 'C' have two children - 'F', who is the same sex (gender) as 'B'; and 'G', who is the same sex (gender) as 'C'...

'E's mother, 'H', who is married to 'L', is the sister of 'D's mother 'M'...

'E' and 'E's spouse (husband or wife) 'I' have two children - 'J' and 'K', who are the same sex (gender) as 'I'...

Note that no persons have married more than once...

Also, there are more number of females than males...

Can you guys tell me, how many members are there; and how many males and females, in this family...?
