Technically, this does not prohibit marriage to cousins.
The fuller prohibition has come partly from a desire to keep as far as possible away from something that is spoken of with such serious warning in scripture. As our society has become more numerous and diverse, it has become more repulsive to us to marry close to family. Cousins usually share a common set of grandparents (though it can be only one grandparent) and one-half of the genetic pool.
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!
If me and my cousin were going to date and someone found out we would get teased!
We are both the same age and have sexual feeling for each other!
i think people misunderstood the relation..mean your like cousin's cousin on the other side, right?
It has also become a joke to put down those who were considered to be from the sticks--that is, rural folks who did not know any better. Second cousins usually share a common set of great-grandparents and one-fourth of the genetic pool.
Third cousins usually share a set of great-great-grandparents and one-eighth of the genetic pool.
like if your her cousin on her moms side, and the one you want to date is her cousin on her dad's side, yeah?
