  1. Would love to hear a short love story or sucess story in each one!
  2. Hows everyone been feeling lately?
  3. Sounds like yall have a connection! Would like to see how this ends up. Love story in the making
  4. Yabby also a half cousin marriage here
  5. I thought you could marry in another state?
  6. LadyC sorry its been so long. I usually only come here (well actually sign in anywayss) when im feeling down and like the world and my community would hate me if they knew about my relationship. I feel better after remembering im not alone. Anyways I wont post a link but if you google dr.phil peddles lies the article will come up.
  7. You are so right. He could have choosen to handle it properly instead of pushing his iwn agenda! Are we allowed to post links here?
  8. I was extemely unhappy with Dr.Phil. Long time fan here that no longer watches. In fact I make sure to put it on regular daytime tv to give someone else ratings lol. I feel like he has forgotten his purpose. Now its just about putting people down to get ratings instead of building people up and helping them. I dont think people go into coucling to tear people down. Really sad and it isnt just this couple. She was very manipulative with her wording and numbers. Also he had none of her family on there that accept them just the bitter lady who clearly always has to be right. Oh I wosh he had a genetic specialist on there to shut her arse down. Hopefully people are smart enough to do their own research. Yes using google because thats how we resesrch things these days!
  9. Is the sole reason they dont want you to be together is because youre cousins? Have you explained you share very little dna? Like .5% to 1.5%? If you share any at all? I will say a family member of mine was so upset but we moved forward anyway and eventually they accepted it. The bible doesnt forbid it and there are examples of cousin marriges in the bible. No where in the US is it illegal to even marry a 2nd cousin. Ive seen so many stories of ppl finding out through dna they were 3rd or 4th cousins. Google i married my 3rd cousin and an article will pop up of someone finding out that way. Eduated them the best you can in genetics. Good luck and best wishes!
  10. One person had a major problem but has since...i guess got use to it? We choose not to tell people but I often wonder how the community would react, it almost feels like im holding on to a deep shameful secret if that makes sense. Even though I never have felt ashamed. I didnt think it was looked so down upon. The people that like me now could turn so quick. Idk just thoughts that are now stuck circulating. Romalee your words make so much sense though thank you.
  11. No they ARE mean ., down right cruel to Michael and Angie the couple from Utah. Ive seen the comments made to them. She handles it quite well though. Better than i would. We have been married 12 years.
  12. It was very hard for me to get an account. It finally worked after about 10 tries. It wouldnt send the confirmation email.

    How do you all get past the taboo of being a cousin couple? Like being rejected and not liked by the world. Ive kept up with the Utah couple and wow are people mean. I must live in a bubble as I didnt know that many people are against it. Even though its been proven its not bad geneticly. Im finding it really hard here lately! I could use advice as Im really struggling!
  14. Im so sorry that happened, its usually a shock to family hope you can still be together anyway! How close of cousins?
  15. We keep it a secret from anyone outside of family but who knows if theyve told anyone.
