Find parallel CC

Recommended Posts

Nick, i know there are a few cultures that differentiate between cross-cousins and parallel cousins, so you might get a few responses. and taking a look at your IP address (which i can do as an admin here), it appears that you live in an area where that is the case.

a lot of the members here though are from western countries, and a cousin is a cousin no matter which side of the family they are from. there is no medical significance, and at least in america there is also no legal significance to cross vs. parallel cousins, so don't be surprised if people don't understand why you're interested :)

you could always move! ok, i know that might not be practical advice...

your problem is going to be the social stigma. being from america, i have never understood the asian culture's view on parallel cousins. but one thing that should ease your mind is that the low risk of birth defects is no different for parallel cousins than it is for cross cousins. 

i don't envy you. i think your culture's hatred of parallel cousins is probably stronger than the american taboo of ANY cousins.
