I mean they aren't related so it's OK right? What would make it wrong in your eyes if you think that?

This is such a hard question... the answers we find in these type questions usually come from gut instinct. We are naturally disgusted by the idea of brothers and sisters shagging. Related or not.
Strictly biologically speaking, I have a problem with any family members having sex. And instinctively am disgusted by the notion... but in this situation, there is no biological connection and so therefore biologically, okay it's fine. But is that really the only reason we are disgusted by it, why it rarely happens?
I still have a problem with it. I still have a problem with non biological siblings mating. Perhaps I worry that the one child, depending on age difference, began inappropriate gestures to one of the younger children while growing up, that I did not see? I believe if I was the parent I might feel that I may have disrupted the natural experiences for my children's growing up, by allowing another, unrelated child to become so close to them and allowing feelings to be confused. I probably would never be able to know, at what age either of the children began to affected the other and what, if any psychological damage, could have been done.
Then there is the case of brothers and sisters separated by birth, coming together, and then falling in love, biologically wrong, however, they are both consenting adults, without ever being put in a situation that could have harmed either one of them during, their development into adulthood. Taking away the fact that any children could be born with serious defects, how can we truly say that these two people are doing something wrong? As long as they don't risk inflicting damage on anyone else what is the harm?
This topic often comes up when debating Muslims, discussing homosexuality, and it's hard to explain to people that believe the world is black and white, right and wrong, that the morality behind homosexuality is a lot more cut and dry than incest and all the reasons that it can and can not be considered moral.2
