    Is it sick or is it ok? I know in some cultures its perfectly normal.

    If you did fall in love with a cousin would you surpress your feelings and carry on or let it be known?

    Interesting to know peoples view on this.

    I know it can be legal if they are not directly related by blood or something like that. Its dodgy ground and i steer well clear of it!! lol! I suppose it helps I am the oldest child in my extended family, all the others are 13 and under!!

    yes but it does happen and they say that you can't help who you fall in love with.. I'm neutral since I don't like any of my cousins but I was just wondering because many people do fancy their cousins...

    I wouldnt dream of fancying one of my cousins , one because they are all younger than me . and two , because its like i want my siste *eww*

    its also not really great if youre married and having kids , dont they increase chances of kids being born wiht downs syndrome ?

    I feel that if love is present between 2 then is it somewhat acceptable. I for one do not fit into the category of this and would hate to see this happen in my family.
    but would understand others.
    I think its a weird n unconforatble situations to be involved in.....
    but I just think that with the situations in society its seen as unacceptable.
    I must this one the most curious threads Ive contributed to.

    I don't regard it has incest, incest is between siblings, incest is between mum and son etc, cousins are allowed to marry and also in many cultures it is acceptable so no its not another incest thread.

    Educate yourself....

    in india...they make sure that the person you marry is 7 generations removed to avoid incest since most marry into their own religion and caste e.t.c

    Cousins are allowed to marry. So why not nephew and aunt? I'd like to know where this is legal.

    In the UK it is legal to marry your first cousin. Though the whole situation is still a bit strange in our culture. I guess it is fine.

    My point is that incest is between close relatives and not necessarily how the law sees it.

    It is legal because aunty and nephew are closer in blood. If you don't believe me than do some research, its a proven fact that aunty and nephew, uncle and niece are closer in blood than even first cousins, you hardly share any blood with 2nd cousins, and 3rd and 4th you are practically not related.

    .... also, the rules about animals are quite ambiguous. They mention that it is illegal to have sex with a live animal and then later talks about corpses but it does not make it clear whether it means only human corpses... hmmmm
