5th cousins?
« on: Jul 26, 2009, 04:21 PM »
hi im a 16 year old boy who is dealing with a cousin couple problem.
me and my 5th cousin fell for eachother we have been caught before and were told to never contact eachother.
its been a year and our love for echother grows and grows and its at the point where im so confident
im not confused and unsure about us anymore.
and im not afriad to tell my mom how i feel about her.
after coming to this website i have found hope and relief for me and my cousin.
but i have had family problems and went through alot this whole year.
my parents divorced and now thiks.
its really affecting my mom and i feel bad.
but i just wan her to understand and accept us.
cause we have went through so much just to be together
and thats what they cant see we went through all this pain just for our freedom.
i have never felt so many feelings ever.
and it has been an extraordinary experience.
it feels like all of this has maken me and my loved one stronger.
we are only 5th cousins and our family is still really worried about.
they were grown up in small town with a really really big family.
so they were grown up knowing having an intimate relationship with your cousin or any family, is just plain wrong.
i also was grown up knowing that. this website  has educated me and has made me feel confident in not just me and my loved one.
but in all of us who have went through this
who have fought for the love.
who has had to face the truth and be so sure about it.
i just dont know what to do.
i need to convince her, because i honestly can not see her out of my life.
shes more then my bestfriend shes more then my lover.
should we educate our parents as well?
becuase i think the main reason is that our family is too big and it would be so much stress to tell them and try to make them understand that we love eachother.
also our parents think us 5th cousins is going to have birth defects with our future children.
But there wrong and i need help and support from anyone who can give advice.
on what we should do so that we can have our freedom and acceptance towards our parents, and hopefully family.

5th cousin?  What?  Are you serious?  I think I might be your 5th cousin!  Seriously, I couldn't map that out if I had to!

Are you really 5th cousins? That means you have to be able to draw your family tree back 6 generations to find your common ancestors. Your family must be quite into the family history thing to know your tree that far back.

All you can do is read the links KC gave you, and read the other cousin-marriage facts on this site starting from the home page and read the letter to your mother for some ideas.

As 5th cousins you are NOT genetically related anymore at all. Your families are freaking out over nothing.

I know a 5th cousin of mine, and yes there is a woman in my family who is the family tree guru. We've traced our family back to 1600. I know a number of my distant cousins. Why, there may even be a potential partner in that bunch, hehe. Not that I'm lookin, lol.
Science and religion are coming together. Learn more. Don't be left out.

Yeah, I don't even think I could trace it back either...5th cousins...Not even related in my eyes..

Besides, if you look at the facts and laws..1st cousins is legal in a lot of states and OK by all means in God's eyes so at 5th cousins, I think you are ok.
It's good to be back.
