Absolutely disgusting. That's nasty. If it was normal, there wouldn't be birth defects and mental deficiencies as a result of it.5THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
Absolutely disgusting. That's nasty. If it was normal, there wouldn't be birth defects and mental deficiencies as a result of it.
Many people are misinformed on this subject. First, the highest source of law on this subject is the Bible, and it does not prohibit marriage between first cousins. Don't take my word for it; go check for yourselves.
Next, the laws again incest do not prohibit marriages between first cousins in approximately half of the states. It is entirely legal in my home state of Florida. If you get married in a state where it is legal, any other state will recognize your marriage as valid.
The genetic warnings are usually greatly overstated for cousin marriages and the risk of birth defects is much lower than the risk in brother-sister unions. Most sources say the risk of a birth defect is 3% for the general population and 5% for first cousin marriages.
One of the motivations behind incest prohibitions is that we don't want someone who is in a position of trust with a child grooming that child to become their mate, or abusing the respect and trust earned in that relationship. This factor is rarely present in first cousin marriages.
Cousin marriages are quite common in some cultures and even in our culture is has happened frequently. Most people will recite that Jerry Lee Lewis married his young cousin but they are unaware that Charles Darwin was married to his cousin, as was Albert Einstein.
The primary problem with cousin marriages is the attitudes you will encounter and the dumb jokes you will be forced to endure. No, I am not, and have never been, married to a cousin. I'm just giving you the facts.
Do you plan on giving birth to a Genetically imbred and mutated child?
In some states it's illegal cousin marriage is illegal.
Don't worry if people find it disgusting, but you do need to check state laws on marriage and, if you plan on having kids, you need to be concerned about those kids having congenital issues because of recessive genes expressing themselves.
well im adopted. so i can date my cousin. because she's not blood to me. not that I've done that. even if i did i wouldn't tell you. anyways its rejected my society in most places and if they are blood your risking the childs well being.
I just wouldn't. It's as if you were dating a sibling. Cringe worthy in my opinion.
As far as I know, it's only safe to date only the offspring of the offspring of your grandparents' cousins.
Incest is bad for genetics.
Well, I personally think it's nasty as fuck lol.
But whatever floats ya boat.
If your people get down like that, then by all means, enjoy...
There's many things wrong about that question or sentence. Talk about sharing the same DNA, well partly.
I would assume those who date their cousins have to cut off family ties because your family will notice this and question it.
if it ain't hurting anyone then i really don't care.
I am not thinking about Incest at all. That's just wrong. X).
Weird but lots of my relatives have done it some countries find it okay, I personally wouldn't.
Second and third cousins, maybe. First cousins, nope.
nah... not my thing basically...
Do as you wish just don't get kids.
That's jsut so wrong to date any of your family relatives. Disgusting.
I don't want my kids to have some kind of disability or deformation, so no.
Incest just leads to inbreeding and there's plenty of fish in the sea who you aren't related to so i don't see why you would need to date your cousin haha
Family is family. If you break up you don't want things awkward for everyone. Let alone the rest.
Ew , your related and you look really similar so DISGUSTING!!!
Uhh what the shit? That it actually my thought for dating siblings
Disgusting, shameful, and bound to have offspring with a genetic mutation.
Better stick with dating your brother... as I read the comments.
It's illegal, immoral, and will fuck up your genetics. Don't go for it home slice.
It's a no no.
Cousins are like brothers and sisters
This would be the worst mistake you can make.
That's gross and it should never happen ever.
Don't do it, it's fucking weird.
Nope, absolutely not
For me is a complete No no
No, even if I'm adopted.
Don't do it.
