Most people on earth despise the fact that people marry and date there cousins e.g ur uncles son/daughter or ur aunts etc...

do u think if 2 people love each other like 2 cousins a girl and a guy or vice versa they should be allowed to date or marry?

No, I don't think they should be. They're still blood related (most of the time) and in my mind that's just wrong.

All I can say is that they would have to have a very tasty vagina.

It's illegal unless they are second cousins.

i suppose morally it's okay as if cousins have kids they have aren't likely to be deformed or anything.

but on the other hand does that mean siblings can have a relationship if they're on the pill?

It's legal if they're first cousins too.

I don't think it's wrong, but I wouldn't want to marry someone who was that related to me. Or related at all, tbh.

I think it's disgusting when the cousins have grown up together all their lives. But I guess if people meet older as cousins and are attracted to each other then I'm not going to judge them.

It is actually legal to marry a first cousin. Personally, I find the idea horrific but it does happen. I guess you could say live and let live, but I don't think they should be allowed to have children, the risk of defects is far too great!

I think there was a story last year (?) about brother and sister twins who were seperated at birth and adopted and had no idea about each other, until they met, fell in love and got married. It was only then that they found out about their blood relationship. That must have been so horrible for them!

I think trying to draw the line about what is acceptable is very difficult. On one hand you have the laws on incest, the risks of inbreeding, the immorality of it, on the other you have the argument that it shouldn't matter if it is between 2 consenting adults. I wouldn't want to be the person who has to draw that line :/

There was a massive argument in the TSR HOC about legalizing incest. Search the "incest bill" :wink2:

But my answer is: oh hail naw.
