Hmm. Interesting. I totally get the genetics and on the whole I agree. But I must admit that there’s still this strong part of me going “Yeeeeee. No way!”

Interesting article.  I have a really close knit family, so I feel like my first cousins are almost like extra siblings.  The thought of even thinking of my cousins in that way is really strange to me.

That honestly made me feel a little sick.

When we went to get our marriage license, they asked us if we were cousins. We aren’t, but apparently they have to ask. It’s legal here, but they have to know so they can list it.

I couldn’t do it. Cousins are family, man…genetically and emotionally. It’s your uncle or aunt’s kid…Big thumbs down to me. There was a story awhile back about step-siblings marrying and I felt the same about that–no genetic similiarity, but still. It’s just…….it’s a big world out there, can’t you find someone else?! lol. I”m with the writer, it grosses me out a little bit. I keep imagining my brother hitting on my little cousin (who’s like, 18) and it weirds me out!

No to sound mean, but I thought when first cousins had kids there’s the potential for mutant kids???

I don’t think step-siblings are that bad. i mean, it’s a little weird yeah, but not a dealbreaker. Cousins – I can’t get behind that.

My mom dated her second cousin when she was like 14. All they did was hold hands. He got his own tv show in 1977. I think it ended up being pretty failboat.:p

woahhhhhhhhhhh. Yeah, like Jessie516, my family is really close so it grosses me out completely. It would be like wanting to be with your sibling. No thanks.

Umm… we can let FIRST COUSINS marry but we can’t let gay people? WTF? That’s so gross.
