Cousin dating ok
To make a long story short, my cousin and I became close friends, then fell in love with each other.
We have that "don't care" attitude on what others say or think about our relationship, but are curious anyway. Dear Jus' need advice from a 3rd party..., Negative reactions to cousins who pair off stem largely from the belief that children from such relationships may have physical and/or mental abnormalities.
I'm t h i r t e e n, and me and my cousin are in the same year 7 class, (we are in year7), and we have sexual feelings for each other!
These people note that 20 percent of marriages around the world are between first cousins, that Albert Einstein and Charles Darwin married their first cousins, and that first-cousin marriage, while prohibited in half the United States, is legal in Canada and throughout Europe.
You can't just say the practice in question is icky.
You have to state a principle and think through its implications. You can't appeal to Victorian morality; Queen Victoria married her first cousin.
If your brother or sister was dating your third cousin would you disown them?
If they never knew each other because they grew up in different states, then they met and started dating. I'm just wondering, all moral values and taboo crap aside, what does everyone really feel about it.
