So we are sitting around today, at some relatives house, eating dinner, watching a little football, kicking back, having a very NORMAL Christmas, when lo and behold, you will never guess what happens. One of my cousins, comes in, gets down on one knee, and freakin PROPOSES to my OTHER COUSIN!?!??! I busted out laughing, thinking it was the best joke EVAR, so did everyone else, but then he looked up and said, "What is so funny, I am serious." and there I about fell out of my chair. WTF would make ANYONE want to MARRY their own COUSIN!?!?!?!??! Everyone was dumbfounded, didnt know what to say.:shake :confused :shake We just sat there in silence, not knowing what to say, and the cousin that was proposed to started crying, all happy, and it appeared that they had kept it all a secret for about a year. Talk about a WEIRD family Christmas, I think that one took the cake from what ANYONE here could have had. My parents and I still cant believe their neice/nephew are getting married in June, nor can I, and this wedding is gonna be something else.........just wanted to share my WACK family story as I still think im in the twilight zone........:shake

Another thing to think about is the legality of that in your state.

i don't think there's ever a smooth way to deliver the news that you've been boning your mom's sister's daughter.

Did she say yes? Are they 15 years old?

I would have laughed my ass off and had to excuse myself. The kids will be well adjusted and normal. :thumb

I'm pretty sure a DNA test will show if they share any genes (?) if not, they are two completely seperate people. As a matter of fact - there is a very rare chance that a brother and sister might not share any genes and be as bioligically similar as complete strangers. :shrug

Sorry to sound so logical :redflip

Technically, incest is....

1. Sexual relations between persons who are so closely related that their marriage is illegal or forbidden by custom.

2. The statutory crime of sexual relations with such a near relative.

Texas does not prohibit the marriage of cousins as you describe it (http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/statutes/fa/fa0000200.html#fa001.2.001). So, it's not incest.

The rule of marriage by cousins IS NOT consistent. Some states bar any relationship. Others go only as far as second-cousins. Some only to first-cousins. Some allow it and only prohibit marriage between direct blood relationships....like father and mother.

Think of it though.... How close are some families anyway? You are the product of your mom and dad. A cousin is the product of two different people...of which, only one shares a common ancestor with one of your parents. You'd need several generations of deliberate inbreeding to have a problem.

Actually it's a big crap shoot. All you need is the same gene passed on by each parent and you have a big problem.

I'm just pointing out, that two people from Alabama find this situation weird. Proving yet again, that Alabama > Texas. Thanks!
