  1. It's just that the original poster stated some confusing things about marriage in Ohio, and I didn't want anyone reading the thread to misunderstand. It isn't "illegal" to be in a relationship with a cousin in Ohio (say, as it is in Texas), and it is possible to be in a legal marriage in Ohio. That does of course require that you are not married to anyone else first.
  2. A point of clarification for anyone reading this thread: while it is not legal to marry your cousin in Ohio, you can be married in a state that does allow cousin marriage, and Ohio will recognize that marriage.
  3. Planning a baby

    You don't even have to go to a genetic counselor; your OB-GYN can order any of a number of genetic tests for you. Even if your health insurance doesn't cover genetic testing, some companies have special rates currently, because they are trying to expand their market. That being said, Lady C is right, being first cousins only raises the risk of birth defects slightly. This is higher for specific populations where cousin marriage is common, so the more you know about your shared ancestry, the better.
  4. Dilemma

    Hi Lilly - as someone who is happily married to her first cousin, I certainly don't think there is anything wrong with your feelings. However, you said he's fifteen. That's too young for a romantic relationship with a cousin (and for most guys, too young for a relationship at all). If you are seriously interested in him, wait until the two of you are both older. The age difference won't matter then. It's okay to feel how you feel, but try to put those feelings away for now. Be friends, concentrate on becoming the kind of woman you want to be, and if in a few years you still feel about him the way you feel now, that would be time to consider pursuing a relationship with him.
  5. I'm a little confused by your story 1) you two are dating, but you've never actually met? ("I haven't met him in person yet, but I plan to very soon.") 2) He's already broken up with you twice, once getting together with someone else immediately afterwards?, and 3) You are both 18, correct? Assuming I got all three of those things right, this doesn't sound like a serious thing. Maybe meet him before you start talking about forever, in any context.
  6. Introduction and Advice

    If you are twenty and your cousin is five years younger, that means she's fifteen. That's too young to "date", even if the two of you aren't in a physical relationship. On the upside, it also means that her feelings about you might change significantly as she gets older, especially if the two of you are friends. Like Lady C and KC said, five years isn't a big difference... once you are both adults. I know it's tough, but I would highly recommend trying to put your feelings on the back burner for now, and concentrating on college and friends and all the fun things about being twenty. If you are serious about your cousin (which if you are looking up marriage laws I'm guessing you are), you have plenty of time, and you can spend that time turning yourself into the kind of man she could fall in love with. If you aren't, it's not worth causing strife in your family over now - you have to live with them for the rest of your life.
  7. Do guys express their feelings during sex?

    I would say that regardless of gender, passion during sex does not necessarily mean anything outside of the bedroom. However, you said in your thread that your cousin told you he imagines a future with you. I would say that's about the best evidence you're going to get that he cares about you.
  8. Got to get this off my chest

    Agree with quarter25. There are too many glaring warning signs with C to ignore; I read your long version, and she's already put you in bad positions multiple times, seemingly whenever she's had an opening to. It doesn't sound like there is much potential for a positive relationship there.
  9. Missing side bar

    Yes, fixed! Thank you both!
  10. Missing side bar

    Someone send me a PM or like one of my posts so I have a notification and I'll tell you.
  11. Missing side bar

    Thanks for all your work on this, we appreciate it a lot!
  12. Missing side bar

    I can't check my notifications on my phone now. When I click on the triple bar, the screen grays out like it's trying to load, but nothing happens.
  13. Am I more than a fwb for my cousin?

    The only person who can answer those questions is him. Why don't you ask him?
  14. Am I more than a fwb for my cousin?

    From what you are saying: you trust him, he's telling you he wants a future with you, he acts like he wants a future with you, he kept a note you gave him for seven years. Everyone thinks about their exes sometimes, that's just life. What's the problem?
  15. Am I more than a fwb for my cousin?

    Do you trust him? If he's saying that he wants a future with you, what makes you doubt that? I'm confused about what this means: "He had been so close to me lately that his mum started doubting that he has feelings for me."
