alrighty, where do I begin?...
My mom is with this guy (they have been together for about 4 years now, and are not married).
Now, my step-dad as I call him, not through marriage though,(not married to my mother) has his mom. His mom has an ADOPTED brother, who has a son, who I am very very VERY much into. Technically speaking he is my step dads cousin, therefore making him MY step-cousin. BUT, he isn't even really related to my step-dad, as his dad and my step-dad's mom (step-grandma) are both adopted. Absolutely ZERO blood relation.
Would it be wrong to date him, my step cousin? The circumstances are different even here, without any blood. I mean, even if there were, if there had been no adoption whatsoever, would it really be wrong to date a step-cousin. I don't see any ethical or moral issues at all. In my opinion, incest is not present, as it would be through marriage, as no real relatives exist. They might as well be some random person you met at the grocery store, ya know?
let's chop it down to:
no blood relation to my step dad
no blood relation to me
no marriage, between my mom and (step-dad)
Regardless, give me your opinions, your very honest ones. I would like to hear what you think about this situation.
Thank you, in advance. :)

I am going through a very similar problem. I'm adopted and my aunt (who I live with while my career is getting started) has a live in boyfriend. He has a daughter. We have became super close. None of the families know about it. As we both know her dad would kill me (literally).
My suggestion. Don't. I have fallen in love with my soon to be adopted step cousin. Our relationship is great when no one is around but the secrecy is killing us. The thought "what if they find out" haunts every moment.
Stop before it's too late. It'll be less painful.0
