    Hi, me and my second cousin are both 18 and have been seeing each other in secret for around 6 months now. All the secrecy is driving us crazy, but we are scared to tell our families because of how they might react to it.

    Can anyone offer some advise for us?

    Are your family against that sorta shizz? Most on TSR will probably give you agro cos you're dating someone so closely related, but if you've already been together for 6 months then it's inappropriate for people to say 'Don't go there' etc. You'll have to tell them at some point, grow some balls. Depends how serious you are about each other though.

    hmm....where are you from?

    Personally, I have no beef with second cousins, but obviously its not me you need to tell....

    perhaps talk to someone in your family (or hers) that you both trust or know won't tell anyone...

    or to guage their reaction, bring it up in a convo...."oh, did you hear about X+Y, they got married and are 2nd cousins"....

    i dont even know who most of my second cousins are. i really don't see an issue with it you're barely related.

    just tell your parents. if they have a go at you and are dicks about it, well who the hell cares what they think, its your life, your decisions.

    You're too young to reveal it without repercussions. Just keep boning her on the sly for a while.

    Just cross your fingers that your children don't end up with tails. Chances are slim that a tail will pop up. But if one ever does... Ya know.
