Recommended Posts

I haven't been by the forum in a couple years, but just wanted to share this positive article I came across today!!! On Valentine's Day of all days too  :cheesy:

9 years married to my 1st cousin this month and it was still, without a doubt, the best decision I have ever made in my LIFE.

Thanks for sharing this- very helpful info! I just found this site today and I'm so glad I did! My cousin and I have been hiding our relationship for a few months now and we are just starting to tell our friends and family. So far we have told our closest friends and his dad and everyone has been more than supportive. My dad (his dad's brother) knows that we are moving in together and we think that he has figured it out for himself. He's been really cold towards us lately so we decided that we have to just straight up tell him. We're going to his house in a couple hours to talk to him about it and some of the info in that article will be helpful. Thanks again! We're wicked nervous... wish us luck :-/
