  1. I am in love with him and completely lost

    One of us was in an unhappy marriage when we met again after years. We also grew up not knowing each other very well. Life is WAY TOO SHORT to be with the wrong person. The married person got divorced before we ever acted on anything, though. We wouldn't want to start a relationship with cheating. We've now been together for a while now... No regrets here!
  2. I'm sure this has been discussed before, but if cousins moved to a new state (where cousin marriage is illegal, but dating a cousin is not) and didn't share the same last name...and then got married... who would ever notice or bother to find out the couple is related? It seems like something that would only be revealed or be a problem if a disgruntled family member or other person reported it. I'd like to discuss this as a hypothetical situation, since I'm sure no one advocates actually breaking a law.
  3. Cousin Marriage is illegal in WA state. I'm looking for any help or advice you might have in managing everything from taxes to mortgages to insurance. One of us was married before, but now all of the "protections" afforded married couples are unavailable to us. I'd love any tips or steps to take. I feel like I need to read all the articles for gay couples before their marriages were legal to get it all sorted.
  4. We are first cousins living in WA state where it is illegal for first cousins to marry. We also are self-employed and need affordable health insurance. (And we need it. I have a chronic illness.) Have any of you managed to get your cousin covered as a partner if not married? I'm not sure if the health exchange policies will go for that, but I'm trying to find out now. I'm afraid two individual insurance policies might be $1400-$2000+ per month, but maybe a family policy might be cheaper... Thanks!
