  1. Its almost as if you all tell your ppl to be really nice to them. Make them comfortable and think we have their backs. Then you flip the script when theyre in front of the cameras and theres nothing they can do.
  2. Dr.Phil had an episode years ago where a couple were 2nd cousins. He told the sister then it wasnt a big deal. He must have got some back lash for it because he blindsided and bashed the newest couple, calling them child abusers! I trusted Dr.Phil to give good advice and he chose to appease for ratings. It was torally ine sided. I would NEVER trust the media or a tv show. I hope your show doesnt air tbh because im so sick of the rude remarks from uneducated people and im sure that would make it even worse. You probably would pick worst case and have them on your show. If you truly want to make a difference in our type of relationship, find a way to make it normal and use recent scientific proof of why its not such a big deal. I for one dont believe you and dont trust media or TV ppl any longer. You can thank Dr.Phil for that.
  3. Who is Stossel? I really struggled after the Dr.Phil episode and the comments made towards them. So much ignorance on the subject of cousin couples
  4. You forgot ramen
  5. Im sorry to hear that. Glad she had you. Prayers!
  6. It has been so quiet around these parts lately! Its nice to see other couples like ours and not feel so alone
  7. I would say give it a little more time. Sounds like he is dropping little hints though! Did you tell your mom you lke him?
  8. Yeah it really hurts me to see the comments on social media
  9. According to Wiki they accept out of state marriages but who knows for sure.
  10. Are you married in another state? Just curious. Im in TX too but we married before the law changed.
  11. Sorry i wish i could help. Not many people are responding lately either. :(
  12. Reading online predating 2018 most articles are positive saying little risks for cousins Now 2019 all you see is genetics risks are high. About how we are ruining genetics for our children. Im so confused! Why all the sudden evrything i read is bad? Im having serious anxiety over this. Also is Alan bitles and other genetic researchers for or against cousin marriage?! Its not clear at all.
  13. Hey Fractured! Im curious...do your kids know youre cousins? How long have you been married?
  14. Would love to hear a short love story or sucess story in each one!
  15. Hows everyone been feeling lately?
  16. Sounds like yall have a connection! Would like to see how this ends up. Love story in the making
  17. Yabby also a half cousin marriage here
  18. I thought you could marry in another state?
  19. 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.
  20. 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?
  21. 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!
  22. 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!
  23. 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.
