    Dear Diary

    I saw this in one of the major newspapers and thought it was so cool. But in the paper, the names were withheld. I could do that with a little custom programming. This forum software is updated so often that it would be difficult to maintain the changes. I like to work within the framework that I am given; it is so much easier. As a free website, we do not make money so there is no incentive to add to my responsibilities. But let's have fun with it!

    Hello

    Don't overthink anything ever. Everything will be fine.
  3. 18 years is a long time to throw away. What if you could get your husband off of drugs, would that make a difference? Maybe that is the direction you should be going? Of course we get these types of questions all the time. There is no hard-and-fast answer. Only questions like the ones I have posed to you. Ultimately you have to make the decision yourself. I am just here to help you make an informed decision with all of my rhetorical questions.
  4. if his dad and your mom are first cousins then I do do not know. 2nd cousins I guess. they would not be your 1st cousins. You are so distantly related that there is no issue unless you make it one.
  5. I'm not sure from what perspective you are seeking an answer from. You have found a good way to sabotage your marriage and I wonder if it could go on even if you wanting to stay with your husband. Do you have kids involved? How long have you been married? What if it doesn't work out with your cousin and you end up with nothing? Why are you not happy with your husband and what makes you think you will always be happy with your cousin? Marriages are not always puppy dogs and rainbows. If you can't get through tough times with your husband what makes you think you can get through those better with your cousin?
  6. I am confused. Didn't you just post that your parents were first cousins? How then are they also your uncle and aunt? Deadbeat dads are not limited to kissing cousins. You dad needs his khoolas snipped. How old are you?
  7. This request should be fine. I'm approving it but moving the topic.
  8. https://staging.cousincouples.com Check it out and let me know what you think! It needs to be proofed but it is nearing 3am, You can compare it to the old one, https://www.cousincouples.com The other pages will have a sidebar. I removed it for the main page. Feedback please!!

    It could be a lot of things. I turned of caching for the entire website because I am remaking the info pages. I also optimized the database which seemed to get it out of wack. I also cleared the forums cache. Pick one lol. I really don't know. It should be temporary tho!
  10. I am putting this here for comments. It is longed believed that "generations" of cousin marriages exponentially cause birth defects. It sounds reasonable but I don't see any evidence for it. Here is a quote from Dr. Brittles: He finds a 4.4% increased risk for the offspring of cousins. I think the NSOGC found an increased risk of 1.6 - 2.7 % for North American cousin couples. There does appear to be a difference but it could be accounted for by poverty and many other factors that are not unique to cousins. LadyC, a closer look at the " congenital anomalies bullet list " shows that cousins have three times the risk of non-cousins. I think that is way out there. Given the fact that the Powerpoint doesn't mention cousins and it erroneously lists hemophilia, the whole darn thing is unmitigated BS. For once anyway, the Trump supporters are exactly right. Dr. Dena is a "brain dead moron!" I think she deserves her very own cc.com page. Who knows? It could happen if I get bored enough.
  11. Dang! I just recognized that the Powerpoint states that hemophilia is increased! N o W a y y y y can she be that stupid, can she? Well she is a politician. Does anyone here believe ANY statistic uttered from a politician? Hemophilia has nothing to do with cousin marriages; it is a sex-linked disorder.
  12. I remember Brittles. I will see if I can find what you are referring to.
  13. It appears that you can't simply go to another state to circumvent your state law, unfortunately. You can move to a legal state and then move back. You would need to discuss this with an attorney.
  14. You have put forth this claim for years now and I still can't verify it. Ottenheimer scoffed at the idea and stated that cousins seem to have more children than unrelated couples. She could have got her stats from those British Pakistanis which had big problems. btw Dr. Dena is called "[sic] brain dead moron" by Trump "trolls" per her twitter account. Dr. Phil forgot to mention that she is a crackpot failed politician as is her husband who beat his first wife and cheated on her with the lovely Dr. Dena. Isn't life grand?
  15. Hi Dr. Dena, Would you please share your footnotes for the stats that you presented on the Dr. Phil show? I have serious questions as to the validity or applicability of your stats as it relates to first cousin marriages. The powerpoint title doesn't mention cousins specifically, so you can where one may be confused as to the applicability of the stats. Thank you for your time in clearing this up. Yours, KC
  16. I will attempt to contact the so called expert and see if she will share her footnotes.
  17. My point is based upon two things. The title of the powerpoint presentation is titled, "Consanguineous Marriage Complications." These stats are made up. I've read every study out there. Cousins actually have a lower chance of miscarriages than the general population. I know bs stats when I see them. Dr Phil appeared to be hungover or stoned. Part of his brand image is being an a$$ hole. Now I'm furious about them claiming that we cherry pick our data. Up yours Dr Phil!
  18. Ouch. It looks like our friends from Utah got blindsided on the Dr. Phil show. It appears that Dr. Phil found a yahoo to mislead the viewers by using stats that represented all consanguineous marriages (incl father/daughter incest). All of the stats were off the wall. It certainly didn't have anything to do with cousins. Dr. Phil warned them to be wary of websites like "cousins-r-us" LOL. I say be wary of talk shows. It's painful to watch this all go down:
  19. for the record, pooch needs a head goring even worse than i do. ask anybody. wait. i just threw pooch under the bus. Sorry man.
  20. hey pooch, glad you can see what i can see. The OP says she can handle her own. Let's see if she comes out swinging 😂😂😂
  21. In a few weeks, I will be back in school. I am going to finish my masters if it kills me. I only have about a year left. A year of grunt work! I will be paying for the last year of tuition out of pocket. I may stick a few unobtrusive ads on here until I finish school. You guys can help me buy ramen noodles and tea. I think I need to upgrade to coffee for real. I can't find any legit 2nd flush Darjeeling anyway. I would even be satisfied with some good Nepal teas. I digress. I am trying to convert the main pages into Wordpress format before I run out of time.
  22. Unfortunately, most of the guest posts were spam and a moderator must manually approve each guest post. It is a bit too much. It only takes a moment to register.
  23. You are still young. Just enjoy your cousin's company. It appears that some kind of relationship is blooming. Slow down and see what happens.
