    Not Telling
  1. I have a situation coming up March that I'm having trouble with. I am going to Florida to see my Mother and her neighbor is my Uncle. You see, my Mother has 2 brothers one of which has past (my Husband's Father) and her twin brother. The Brothers never got along and went years without speaking which was initiated my my Mother's twin. He and I have always been very close, but when he found out I was marrying my Husband, I know he did not approve. Once when my Mother was visiting when I was getting married, he called looking for her. When my Husband answered he was not pleasant with him. He did not mention anything but was rude. I have talked to him since and he was okay. His and my Mother's relationship has declined although she tells me it has nothing to do with me. Now my Husband is not going with me in March because he is needed at work but my Daughter (who adores my Hubby) who is 25 will be going with me. I'm a little scared. My Uncle has 3 boys and a wife that I get along with but I don't know what to expect. My Mother is VERY supportive of me and has always been right by my side. Most of my friends know who my Husband is and are great. They have never made me feel anything but loved. So I guess this is the first time I have had to face disapproval which is part f life and nothing will ever change my mind about who I'm married to because the love we share is not like anything else I have ever known. I guess I'm trying to be prepared but don't know where to start. Maybe everything will be fine, but I don't want to come off defensive and trigger anything. Any advise would be helpful.
  2. You know what I say is that we knew each other when we were kids and reconnected later on. Many of my close friends know that my Husband is my cousin and they are all very accepting of that. But that's not always going to be the case, so this one has worked for me since it is true.
  3. Hello, I am a new member and I have say this is a wonderful site. I married the love of my life 2 years ago and he is also my first cousin. We were very fortunate that our parents (ones now alive) were very accepting after the shock wore off. I am 47 and I have three grown children from a prior marriage who are also very supportive and love my Husband.I do remember feeling very scared about our relationship and what effect it would have on other family members outside of immediate family. I came to the conclusion that even though some of them did not approve, I didn't care. My Husband and I are so alike and have so much in common that our marriage is really something special. I guess if I were to offer any advise on entering into a relationship with a cousin it would be to stay strong, take your time, don't harbor resentment against family that don't understand or approve and just love each other. Most of the time, others will eventually come around to acceptance and even if they don't, just know that it's because they don't understand. Many cultures encourage marriages between cousins mainly to ensure common values and beliefs and there is really something to that. My Husband and I are stronger because of how we think, what we believe in and how we treat each other. Again, thank you for such a supportive site.
