    Docu-series - looking for couples!

    Thanks Ambra_Flows! Yes, absolutely. I totally understand that. This is more about releasing the stigma of "unconventional" couples to show the world how accepting we can all be of any kind of love. I think a lot of people hide their relationship purely in fear of judgement. We would be documenting the love between two people, showing the journey and hurdles they have had to over come and WILL have to overcome in coming forward with it to family and friends. The whole purpose of our show is to root for love and really hope love prevails in the end. We are still looking for couples and I've gotten a few emails but some couples haven't responded back to follow through with our initial phone call. We're very kind and understanding over here and just want to talk. Reaching out to us isn't a set in stone commitment so if anyone reads this and wants to talk but is afraid of following through with being on TV, that's okay. We allow everyone to back out and don't hold people to anything until the final round of either committing to do the show or not. We completely understand how this is a big leap to take!

    Cousin Couples from the Philippines let's unite here

    i admire you guys Basta kapit lang po kayo, may liwanag din po sa dulo ng mahabang tunnel na tinatahanak na tinatahak natin All we have to do is pray
  4. Seriously I do not know what to say. We were too young when it all started, maybe if we met in mid twenties we would have been able to control ourselves and we were not going to cross the line. I feel like our life has been too hard on us compared to other family members :(, I do wonder why us in our family? It's not healthy for any of us including his gf. I understand that she really likes him and it's not her fault that we are attracted to each other. She shouldn't be the one suffering and I respect him for keeping his word. I have to let it go and never look back!

    If people are misinformed, you just have to educate them. I usually start by saying "Darwin, Einstein, and Queen Victoria all married their first cousins, so I think I'm in good company." We don't advertise that we are cousins, but it usually comes up with friends in the "How did you meet?" conversation. We just tell people simply and directly when they ask. They are usually mildly surprised, many people then tell us about a cousin crush they've had. It hasn't happened, but if anyone reacted with shock and horror, I wouldn't want them as friends anyway.
  6. My cousin DID marry someone else. So did I. I went to his wedding (after my divorce) and tried to talk him out of it. I bit my tongue, went on with my life and some years later when he had divorced, we got together. Finally!

    My Muse

    Another inspiration from her. Muse of mine, love unconditionally A bond so strong, only dieties may intervene. My affection, a degree of Omnipotentcy Allure beyond simple Mortality. Eternity, I am purplexed by this hex. A boon of my heart for this Aeon and the next Infinite, if this Amour had units to compare. A million resurrects, at least one would not fail Pressure is clustered in this array of Stars Lifetime of longing, are we still worlds apart? My Angel, rearrange the cosmos as you see fit. All of Space, Time and Love is my final gift.

    My Muse

    In love with my cousin. Whenever I'm near her, my inspiration runs wild. I would love to share some of the words she helped me create (Reposting from other thread, missed the poem fourm) My Nova Of all these stars in my silver screen One burns brighter than I've ever seen A radiant glow, blissful energy Impossible to express in this reality  A love beyond flesh, or fathom of thought A being I'd love after I'm torn apart Concealed within me, spurning truth A soul I'll coddle til death, since my youth. Her Aura charges my muse Though I cannot imbue hers An easy refuse Given the Affinity Shackled and judged should my covet be The entire desire, though exiled I'd see In histories course, the repetitions exist Am I lesser for clenching the same fist? In each aeon that star is encountered The pressure grows exponentially Heavy burden follows entombment Silence sheathes whispering chimera. A confession, a feeling, that in public eye Is jagged to the moral of a common time Behold, to me, a utopian dream. Peruse, to them, interdiction it seems. My star, my moon, my sky, my sun They keep me intact, without her I'm done  Encumbered gloom as distance unveils So divine, this Belle. Worth my eternity in hell.

    Poetic Expression

    So, I wrote another one for her. Everytime I'm near her, I feel so inspired. If only I could figure out how to confess my thoughts to her. Maybe the poems are the best way? (Also, I'm aware that I use similar words between poems, but some words can't be exchanged) Muse of mine, love unconditionally A bond so strong, only dieties may intervene. My affection, a degree of Omnipotentcy Allure beyond simple Mortality. Eternity, I am purplexed by this hex. A boon of my heart for this Aeon and the next Infinite, if this Amour had units to compare. A million resurrects, at least one would not fail Pressure is clustered in this array of Stars Lifetime of longing, are we still worlds apart? My Angel, rearrange the cosmos as you see fit. All of Space, Time and Love is my final gift.

    The best way to stop the nonsense is to educate yourself. Much of the stuff in that article is garbage. I am astounded that it is still going around. It has 8 million views!

    Here is a little hint. It is all many people know about cousin marriageshttps://m.ranker.com/list/mutations-and-birth-defects-caused-by-royal-inbreeding/peterdugre?utm_medium=ob&utm_campaign=ob-m-002ede44b2dc236156cc91db0e68e40bb4&utm_term=U.S.&obcid=002ede44b2dc236156cc91db0e68e40bb4

    Whycousins?

    I lost access to Cadbury account. I just wanted to share that I met my Cousin, it feels good to see his face. We had an eye contact for a split second and it felt like he wanted to say something perhaps it might be related to this website or God knows. I truly pray that he iss reading my messages, I don't think I will get an opportunity to confront my feelings for him.

    Whycousins?

    Cause there's somethin' in the way you look at me It's as if my heart knows You're the missing piece You make me believe That there's nothing in this world I can't be I never know what you see But there's somethin' in the way you look at me

    Whycousins?

    W. H. Auden, 1907 - 1973 Looking up at the stars, I know quite well That, for all they care, I can go to hell, But on earth indifference is the least We have to dread from man or beast. How should we like it were stars to burn With a passion for us we could not return? If equal affection cannot be, Let the more loving one be me. Admirer as I think I am Of stars that do not give a damn, I cannot, now I see them, say I missed one terribly all day. Were all stars to disappear or die, I should learn to look at an empty sky And feel its total dark sublime, Though this might take me a little time.

    Docu-series - looking for couples!

    I find it hard to believe that any cousin-couple who has kept their romance a secret, will want to come out on a TV show. To be a cousin couple who decides to come out, it might be something like preparing to sleigh dragons. The dragons being your family members first off, and then friends and others. I wonder if there are any homosexuals whoever came out on a TV show ... besides Ellen on her sitcom years ago, lol ... and her career paid a price for that too, but luckily she has recovered. Perhaps on your show you should show the kinds of things cousin-couples are up against when deciding to come out of the closet. Those are real hurdles to overcome. Outlining exactly what you want to do on your show might make people more confident in coming onto your show. As for me, my cousin-love died decades ago, so I won't be going onto your show, lol.
  17. @Jason116 Thanks for sharing this amazing update!

    I also do not understand the level of judgmental attitudes towards cousin relationships.

    Early stages of a possible relationship

    Who are the important people that you feel you should know or you care that they know? Of course, first thing is her parents...but other than that, are there any others? I wish you the all the best. Pooch

    Early stages of a possible relationship

    UPDATE Well, it happened. After a long journey, after being there for her, supporting her, tending to her needs, and showing her she could rely on me, she finally told me that she loved me. It was small at first. When I had finished spending the one night at her place, I put my arms around her, kissed her on the forehead, and I told her that I loved her. She responded back with a barely audible, really timid, "love you too". I couldn't believe my ears, but she said it. For the first time, she said it. She said the magic words I've been dying to hear. As the days went by, I gave her the space and time she needed to examine her feelings, and her confidence grew. Soon it was naturally coming from her mouth, those three little words, "I love you.". I get texts all the time now, I'm spending a lot more time with her, she stood up for me when her one friend was running me down, it's crazy to think that everything I dreamed about was coming true. I then wrote her an honest to goodness love letter where I completely bared my heart and soul on paper and told her how much she meant to me and how much I loved her. A few days later after she read the letter, we made love for the first time. Without getting too graphic, the first time was awkward, nervous, anxious... we had to learn each other's rhythm and find out what each other's needs were... then we had to face the huge taboo of "Ooh, what are we about to do!" The first time wasn't magic, no. Definitely not. Around about the third or fifth time however, it was pure bliss and she is honestly the best lover I ever had. She drives me CRAZY! She says I satisfy her and so far, she's always smiling afterwards lol So I guess I'm doing something right 😄 We have successfully transitioned from cousins to lovers. We don't act like cousins anymore, instead, we act like a couple. Our next goal is to have a long and healthy relationship, and my own personal goal? I want to marry her. My state does allow cousins to marry, and after some time together, I fully intend to propose and make her my wife, if she'll have me. There is the huge question about what to tell the members of our family. To be honest? There already has been some talk. A lot of gossip has been made by what I'm doing over at her place all the time, why am I always buying her stuff, why is she so happy when I'm near, why we both stopped dating people... yeah, it's not exactly a top top secret. I honestly don't know what's going to happen when we "come out" so to speak. I know there will be fallout and I'm prepared to face the worst, which could end up being pretty bad. I'm fully expecting us to be disowned. We told some of our friends, and some of our friends were very understanding and supportive, and some laughed and said it was gross. At the end of the day, we still have each other, and that's enough for us. To any reading this, I have this to offer if you too are in love with your cousin: If you love them, if you really, really, love them... don't ever give up. Never fail to spend time with them, show them attention, prove you'll be there through good times and bad, shower them with affection and praise, always build them up, become their best friend first, then maybe... slowly... begin to show them just how much you feel about them. Give them time, space, and room to grow, and if it's meant to be, and if they feel anything for you, even if it's only the tiniest spark? You just might be surprised at where it leads.

    Dont get me wrong, I love my cousin and Im not that type of that guy that cares about others opinions, however anyone that I have met that is not a close mate, is always against cousin marriage. I dont get how so manny people can support LGBQT yet cant support cousin marriage. Literally 90% of people I have met have always been against cousin marriage. I will happily marry my cousin however this community is quite upseting of how uneducated they are. What do you lot say ?

    Docu-series - looking for couples!

    Hi everyone! It's been a while but I'm still looking to talk to some couples who are keeping their relationship private from family/friends! If you are interested, shoot me an email. [email protected]

    Whycousins?

    I think @LadyC hit it right on the head. I too hope you and your cousin can find that deeper trust in each other and have open communication and clarity in your relationship. Whichever direction that takes you.
  25. @Ambra_Flows Very well stated. You are right on. I know from personal experience, that one's family can be far harder to navigate than the law of the land. And it seems to all just be a hang-up on "but, you are cousins"... I see so many unhealthy relationships/marriages in my extended family, including neglect/abuse/infidelity, and don't see much outrage over it. Just turn a blind eye. I wish people could see the love/connection between two consenting adults, instead of just a title. Very sad indeed. I have a former sister-n-law that is going out of state to marry her cousin this w/e. I am happy for her, that she found someone who she is happy with, and loves. Hopefully everyone keeps their judgemental comments to themselves.
  26. Hello Everyone, Being a long-time poster here, even though I don't post too much anymore, I was thinking about posts I've read on here about cousin-couples wishing that cousin-romance/marriage was as recognizable and acceptable as much as homosexual relationships are these days. Gay marriage has become legal in various parts of the world, it's legal in Canada, for example. Gays though, are more recognizable, and hence harder to keep "in the closet" than cousin romances. If a gay couple walks down the street, their actions and gestures may make them very recognizable. But cousin-couples look like any ordinary couple walking down the street. Gays now have legal marriage, which makes them mainstream or acceptable or recognizable. And cousin-couples do have legal marriage in various places all over the world. It's legal to marry your cousin in Canada, for example. (I live in Canada). It's also legal to marry your cousin in some of the U.S. states. And if my memory serves me correctly, it's legal to marry your cousin in Australia, England, Japan, the middle East, Kuwait, and I'm sure other countries that I'm not aware of. So making cousin-marriage legal has not made cousin-romances/marriages more acceptable or recognizable. When you think about it, the battle to get one's cousin-romance/marriage accepted, mostly lies in the family of the cousin-couple. Will the family accept it, and then will one's friends accept it, and then will one's culture accept it. Those questions are answered yes to no in various degrees depending on the country and region/culture, one is in. The battle lies mostly in the family unfortunately, for each cousin couple. And I don't see any quick solution to that. However, for these documentary film makers wanting to make a show about cousin-romance, they need to consider my observations here, when putting together a documentary. They need to look at the biological factors influencing cousin-marriage, and the legal and cultural factors as well. Cousin-marriage remains stigmatized in some regions of the world, mostly due to biological factors, then perhaps religious factors which have no merit as the Bible is quite alright with cousin-marriage, and then with cultural factors. Unless the negative thoughts in these areas were dispelled, the stigma will continue. A good documentary approaching the subject as I have outlined here, might make a difference in the world view of cousin-romances/marriages. Ambra
