  1. I think it's amazing how world religions aren't even against cousin marriages. I thought the Bible would be against it, but much to my surprise you could even say it was encouraging it! I suppose some people do have a brotherly/sisterly relationship with their cousins, and so it's just a bit weird for them. But that's the same with with a childhood best friend, if you've grown up together you're like siblings and no one's hating on their union. Honestly this has really helped! Thank you guys for the support
  2. Yep on the internet. I mean people I know aren't as brutal about it, many of them come from cultures where cousin marriages are encouraged, but I suppose they don't agree with it because they've had enough of it?
  3. So true!!! Critics won't be there to rebuild your life. I always try to remember that, at the end of the day when I'm behind the closed doors of my home, if I'm happy then that's all that matters, because even if let's say I marry the 'ideal partner' people want you to have, if deep down I'm not happy, I'm only living for people. And that's not living your life, let alone a fulfilling one. It's a facade. Thank you!!!!
  4. Aww thank you Nat! I really appreciate that. I will definitely get the book.
  5. Hi, I'm an absolute newbie and I love that this website exists. Right, to the point! I'm not gonna bore you with the details of my love story, but I will say that I've had a really difficult time digesting the fact that my cousin and I want to get married. You see, I was one of those people who thought cousin marriages were gross and that there were billions of other people in the world so no one should have a relationship, let alone marry, their cousins. Boy oh boy how karma likes to bite you back in the arse! I fell in love with my first cousin who lived two oceans apart, I really rarely saw him so he wasn't like a brother or anything close, you could say a stranger? We never really spoke, I just about recognised who he was. Anyway, I know I shouldn't care about what people think, but it gets to me when people say things like "Ew that's incest." I don't know, I just think it's so hurtful when people say horrible degrading things like "oh it's like sleeping with your brother"... I don't consider it incestuous at all, but upon researching cousin marriages, I came across some people who felt strongly about it being incest. That grosses me out and makes me see my husband-to-be in a different light. I know, I know, I shouldn't care, but I need reassurance that marrying your cousin isn't actually gross, or incest. I feel disgusted at the prospect of being in a potentially incestuous relationship, and I suppose my judgement is clouded by other people's opinions, so I need some positive opinions to realise that the world isn't full of haters. Thanks
