It generally means that the bonds of family and common ancestry are stronger than those bonds between unrelated people .

\"Blood is thicker than water\" is a German proverb (originally: Blut ist dicker als Wasser.), which is also common in English speaking countries. It generally means that the bonds of family and common ancestry are stronger than those bonds between unrelated people (such as friendship).
