Research shows, that 1st cousin marriages are actually very common all over the world, but only recently in United states, it's usually frowned upon since there is a slight chance of offspring birth defects. Although some people argue that birth defects more importantly involve a women's age, some states (USA) have already laws that prohibit marriages between first cousins.

Famous people who married their cousins include:
Albert Einstein
Charles Darwin
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Rudy Giuliani

So if you were in love with your cousin, with you consider marriage?

Well the thing is that in this day and age of society the thought of even having a loving relationship with your cousin is very frowned upon and most likely every child has been brought up knowing that it's not "normal".

I'm sure if I was brought up in a different country where it isn't such a big deal and I never knew that it was a bad thing than it would be very possible.

I wouldn't ever be in love with my cousin, so I could not answer your question.

If I fell in love with my cousin, the marriage would no be valid in most US states.
My cousin is a dude, and he's my only cousin...

Anything closer than third cousin is disgusting to me.

Although, I guess it's personal choice. If there's no effect on the child, then there's no reason to say they can't get married.

Only in modern western society may it be considered incest.

I'd marry my cousin if I was really in love with them, I don't see why you wouldn't. Love is love, no matter who it's with, just because you're of the same bloodline doesn't mean anything. Technically, if you believe in the Bible, we're all related anyway (Adam and Eve).

I think Edgar Allen Poe married his cousin as well, to go with the list of names at the beginning of this thread.

Then get out of the closet and propose.

Probably not.
I would think that would increase birth defects because of closer ties.

Exactly, so everything could be considered incest.

I'm in the UK. We generally allow minority to walk over us over here. Whether they be Muslim, Polish, or Gay, you can be damn sure they've got more rights than the ordinary citizen. Blair stared it, Brown said he'd stop it, he has yet to do so.

I see a similar thing happening in the US.

I'll be 15 tommorow, and she's only 12. I don't think proposing right now is the best of ideas.

I don't think this is true. I think that myths about birth defects from inbreeding (the technical name for having children with family members) are exactly that: myths. The real problem with inbreeding though, is that there's little variation in genes. What this means is that if your family isn't particularly resistant to a certain disease and that disease hits, your whole family will be affected. Though, this is a long term side-effect, you'd need to have made a large population from one family across generations, which in human society, is very unlikely to happen.

I would never love a family member in a sexual way.
Therefore no, I would not marry my cousin.


Yeah, whatever.
