  1. It reminds me of the chapter of Job. God had the devil take everything from Job, but Job stayed faithful to God, and ultimately, was rewarded by God. God sometimes sends us challenges to, not only test us, but also strengthen us. Think of some of the challenges we face as a workout to beef up our muscles ?
  2. It's not impossible, as people have dated and married their cousins in history. Nowadays, I believe the issues with cousin relationships stem primarily from hearsay and misinformation.
  3. Remember - a married girl, whether a cousin or not, is always a big no in the bible! Fight off the temptation!
  4. So generally speaking, based on biblical and state laws, is it wrong to ask a second cousin out? "Burning that bridge" is a potential outcome that may come when asking a cousin or any girl out. You just need to be ready for whatever happens.
  5. I am sorry to hear about your divorce, KC. If your cousin/wife has been a large source of negativity on your life, then it's a good thing that you are separating yourself from her. Surround yourself with good people that can help you become better and stronger! Also, seeing that you are a fellow, Christian, seek God as well! Ask Him in what direction He wants you to take.
  6. There's nothing terrible about having an interest in a second cousin. As mentioned, its allowed by biblical and state laws. If there is a terrible idea, I believe it could be the fact that your cousin is under 18 (refer to KC's posts).
  7. Read my threads - I think it might help you. I, too, was rejected by my second cousin. What made it worse was that she had her family and relatives grill me on the whole matter and she even added various lies to make me look bad. Furthermore, other relatives mentioned that she and her family were interested in reuniting, provided that I apologize for my interest in her. As a Christian, do biblical and state laws prohibit the courtship and marriage of second cousins? No. If that is the case, why should I apologize for my interest in my cousin? Seeing the overall craziness and negativity of
  8. Thank you Nattana and KC for your support and advice. I will also check out the books you have recommended!
  9. I agree with you, Nattana. They are incredibly, nasty people. They make it seem that a cousin attraction is the "sin of all sins". Also, my cousin has added lies to make me look pretty bad. On the other hand, I am glad this incident occurred, as it has exposed their "true colors". It's only in troubling, trying times that you know who your true friends are. Moving forward, I am going to ensure that future generations from my family avoid and not acknowledge any ties or relations with them. An important lesson to learn - just because some people are your relatives does not mean y
  10. For background information, please read this thread first: My relatives said that my second cousin and her family were interested in getting back together, but wanted me to apologize for my interest in my cousin. Upon hearing this, I did not know whether to laugh or get angry. It has been one of the most bizarre and twisted types of logic I have ever encountered. Is it against the bible to marry your second cousin? No. Is it against U.S. laws to marry your second cousin? No. Upon hearing their statement, I have decided to cut all ties, communications and relations with my
  11. While God allows the marriage of cousins, he does not allow adultery. Because you are married, I would kindly advise you to stay away from your cousin. Continuing what you are doing is going to lead you to a lot of serious trouble and problems in the long run.
  12. Agreed. God may allow cousin marriages, but he does not allow adultery.
  13. As KC perfectly sums up Leviticus 18, it is about who you can and cannot marry. At first, when you read Leviticus 18:6, you will automatically think that you are not to approach any of kin for marriage. But when you read further, you realize that the bible specifies which kin you could not marry. Based from Leviticus 18, you cannot marry your father, mother, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, niece, nephew, daughter-in law, son-in law and so forth. However, when you scroll through the list, you then see that cousins are not on the list, meaning that God allows the marriage of cousins, explaining wh
  14. Sorry KC, I referenced the wrong member. It has been corrected ?
  15. I will also quote the King James Version (KJV) as well: 6 None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the Lord. 7 The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. 8 The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father's nakedness. 9 The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover. 1
