Whichever way I'm staying with her as long as she wants to do so herself but sinc we also have kids I'd do my best to convince her to stay.
I sure wont' get over her since I loved her before we realized we are the same blood line. Whichever way nature didn't create these taboos, society i.e. humans did.
Though people will freak out at the idea and also considering that children born out of such relationships tend to have disorders but that is not really necessary and would I love my wife or kids any less even if the kids did have any disroder.
I'd say forget everything and just love her for the woman she is the way you did before :D
In short I'd never change anything, I'd love her the same way and maybe more :)
I don't think I would be able to change the way I felt, and the fact that we have a child would mean the child and its mother mean the world to me, so for me to decide what to do means one thing, I would decide to let her choose my fate, because there is no way I would be able to choose otherwise but to continue as we were, with the exception of having any more children.I Think? x
What would I do? Well. I don't really know to be honest. It would probably involve sitting in silence for 10 minutes whilst letting my jaw wipe the floor. I would then demand a retest and if it returned a positive then id imagine that I would carry on life as before, the new information doesn't change who we are so why should we make ourselves change. The one exception being: plan on not having any more children due to potential complications with inbreeding.
I don't think there is much I'd do. We already have children. I'm not sure honestly I think I'd have to ask for people's advice. Would the government require you get divorced. Now that I think about it, would you even be able to get married since the government I assume would bring this to light when you applied for a marriage license.
I'd be kinda surprised my kids aren't mutants. At the same time I'd be like w.t.f that's messed up. I'd be wondering why I didn't know my half-sister existed. I'd be worried for her health, hoping she'll recover.
And eventually I reckon I'd just roll with it. Not tell the kids. Not tell anyone else. What's done is done and disgust, rejection etc... isn't going to improve anyone's life in the whole affair.
I feel like it's a social thing more than anything - as long as we don't go advertising it out to the world what does it matter? It would surely weird me out for a few days, but if I care enough about this person to marry them then something like that shouldn't make me care any less.
We're all related to some extent, and we're all a bit inbred because of it. It's only after several generations that it becomes an issue. It happens in nature all the time and as long as it isn't the norm it's OK.
That is a situation where you can't honestly answer it with fullest integrity until you are in that position, I mean that'd totally depends on the relationship you have with him/her, the extent you're willing to go to salvage what's left, and how invested you are in emotions. I don't think it is as clear and as concise to just answer yes or no.
I would get a divorce. The good side would be that since we're "perfect for each other", we should be able to get through it well and talk about it in a mature and understanding way. After puking up all of our previous week's dinners, that is.
If I were two months pregnant? Well, I'd have to reconsider my whole life philosophy if that happened.
I wouldn't tell the family members that's for sure. Honestly I would just agree to not mention it to anyone. Hopefully the child won't have a thumb sticking out of his forehead. I would hope my s/o would have the same thought.
I would end up divorcing her; she's my half sister. You can pick your friends and you can pick your lovers, but you cannot pick your family. I would never be able to think of her romantically again and I would be disgusted with myself for continuing such a relationship.
If none of our previous kids have disorders I would say to let the baby be born. But if they all have problems then I would have to say it MIGHT be better if the child was never born into such miserable fate...
Of course, I would help to finish raising the kids and I am quite familiar with what it's like to raise a child with disabilities/disorders within divorced parenting (my father had kids to three different women, two of which had visitation rights with the latest of which being low-functioning autistic).
For the kid's sake I would say tell them that we are distant relatives, but that we also had a falling out. I would not give details about it until they became adults. This would also be after a lengthy explanation of how genealogy works and how much diversity is needed for natural survival. I mean, supposedly everyone is related to the first humans. If that's the case then we are all very distantly related as well.
First I'd get my kids checked to see if they have any disorders. I'd keep the kid I was pregnant with. Then I'd talk with my husband about options. We could either get him fixed so we wouldn't have any other kids and stay together or we'd get a divorce. But I'd make sure to keep the information under wraps forever no matter what we decide to do.
I read the Mortal Instruments series and honestly it changed my opinion on the matter. I used to think the best thing to do was to get a divorce and flee the country and never see each other again. But now I'm not so sure. It's not really fair for people to think badly of you because you didn't know. And as long as you stop having kids then it's okay. And it's pretty messed up for the parent you have in common not to say anything. Unless they don't know. Then you could probably get away with it.
I think that's one of the reasons why I'm not attracted to Asians lol - they all remind me of my brother. I thought they'd do the blood testing match with the recipient only and not the potential donors? and there was no DNA testing and without the half siblings parents present the test would be inconclusive.
still - it's a situations you can't fully answer unless its really happening. that also means you are mother/father and aunt/uncle to your own child.
But seriously that would be messd up. I don't even know what to think. I mean they aren't FULLY my sibling so it wouldn't be so bad? lol. We would probably have to do some confidentiality agreement secrecy thing.
