Affine is a form of political, non-sexual, cross-species marriage (which does not preclude traditional marriage for the participants).
Affinity is a relationship governed by obscure cultural rules concerning non-marriage bonding of individuals or families of different sophont species, and the associated inheritance of titles and property. The cultural conventions are comparable to individuals declaring themselves to be "blood-brothers" (or a gender-free blood-sibling concept), or to adoption of strangers into an extended family.
