His kids are ok with it and our 2 are younger and havent said anything. 7 and 12. We are half first cousin also in texas but married way before the law. Anyone I have told says oh its only half so its no big deal. I havent had anyine say anything negative to me but i cant get past it mentally lately. And seeing all the comments on videos bothers me. That only human video has everyone saying it should be illegal and thinking its so dangerous to have kids when its not. Im glad its easy for yall! Which part of texas? North, south, east? Thanks for the reply
Our kids were grown and out on their own when we got married. None of them, even at that age,
seemed to have a problem with it. They all (6) are fine with it. My oldest (son) made a light joke of it
at first. He lives in Georgia, and said "Mom if you were in Georgia I could understand, but you are in
TEXAS!!" He is good with us and really enjoys being around my hubby. And asks him for advice on lots of stuff.
My daughters are good and his kids are good.
I understand you are asking from the standpoint of younger children but though the perspective of
grown children might help too.
As far as getting past it, we are second cousins and that usually doesn't hold as much stigma as first cousins do.
We have fun with it. Don't need to tell everyone we meet of our situation. But will tell if someone asks how we met.
Well, there is no lobbying effort. I would pickup my kids and get the hell out of there. Nobody would take my kids from me. Statistically that are in far greater danger when "unrelated" caregivers take charge.
Nobody is coming to save you. Move to a state where it is legal to marry one's cousin And put this behind you as quickly as possible.
