Family relation

Just a quick question on family relation to my girlfriend. We have always been referred to as first cousins, because my dad and her dad are brothers. But, they are actually half brothers (same mother, different father) from two separate marriages. If I understand it all correctly, that would make her and I half cousins wouldn't it?

yes, you are half cousins. that is an important thing to keep in mind, because it does change the genetic risks, and also makes a difference in some states when it comes to marriage laws.

Perfect, thank you for the answer, that was what I thought. I'm 43 and she is 38, we both have kids already from previous marriages so having more kids is completely off the table anyway. We live in Arizona so the laws are a little ambiguous, but better as far as half cousins are concerned rather than first cousins. Neither of us are really looking to get married again anytime soon, but it's good knowledge to have if we changed our minds at some future date to at least know where everything stands. Thank you again. :-)
