That seems pretty dang far away, so sure, why not.


Oh, sugar cousins, know I understand! This is how I count: cousin, little cousin, sugar cousin.
I don't even know how many 3rd cousins I have and even 2nd cousins are hard to tell. So I would date my 3rd cousin. :p Maybe even 1st cousin (I have a crush on them every now and then).

I would say, why not?

I actually know a friend who's parents are siblings, like actual brother and sister. My friend is very much normal, she's not "deformed" either. The only thing I regret is making a disgusted look when she told me. I can only imagine how sad she felt when I did that to her.

I dated a girl for a short while who turned out to be a half-sister. I didn't find out until long after we were through. Our parents happened to meet one day and that's how we found out.


Damn.

Well, depends on my relationship with her. Once you get to the third cousin level, blood is already diluted and I am very much a feelings over blood type of person. So, if we didn't have the relationship of third cousins, then I see no reason why I wouldn't.

Nope, I wouldn't even date the cousins on my step-dad's side that aren't really my cousins, it would just be too weird for me.

Sure. Valid until 2063.
Posted 3/16/13
I wouldn't date anyone at all

Everyone's more or less related.
Second and third cousins? Just about as much related to you as any random stranger.

If you want to avoid marrying a distant cousin, then pretty much your only option is to marry a foreigner.

Personally, I don't see what's the big deal. Some folks just like to blow things out of proportion, I guess. To put it into perspective, it took this much inbreeding to produce King Charles II:

Anyone care to explain why you wouldn't date a cousin or sibling that you had feelings for?
