the thing is, he had the ability to have a genetic specialist on there, and he CHOSE instead to have someone who would give slanted and inaccurate information. that was not by accident. it was totally intentional.
I was extemely unhappy with Dr.Phil. Long time fan here that no longer watches. In fact I make sure to put it on regular daytime tv to give someone else ratings lol. I feel like he has forgotten his purpose. Now its just about putting people down to get ratings instead of building people up and helping them. I dont think people go into coucling to tear people down. Really sad and it isnt just this couple. She was very manipulative with her wording and numbers. Also he had none of her family on there that accept them just the bitter lady who clearly always has to be right. Oh I wosh he had a genetic specialist on there to shut her arse down. Hopefully people are smart enough to do their own research. Yes using google because thats how we resesrch things these days!
Is the sole reason they dont want you to be together is because youre cousins? Have you explained you share very little dna? Like .5% to 1.5%? If you share any at all? I will say a family member of mine was so upset but we moved forward anyway and eventually they accepted it. The bible doesnt forbid it and there are examples of cousin marriges in the bible. No where in the US is it illegal to even marry a 2nd cousin. Ive seen so many stories of ppl finding out through dna they were 3rd or 4th cousins. Google i married my 3rd cousin and an article will pop up of someone finding out that way. Eduated them the best you can in genetics. Good luck and best wishes!
