    I have a cousin who married his cousin by marriage. Is this wrong? They are not really related, it is just that my cousins aunt remarried and so my cousin married her step daughter. What do you think about this?

    I do believe that marriage between close blood relations can cause genetic defects in a child born of that union so on that score yes now as for the step father getting wed to his stepdaughter while I do find it somewhat sorrid I assume they are not blood relatives so woudnt object on that score
    The problem that ic can raise is did the man marry so that he could possibly groom the step child as a sex partner? Not saying that is the case here as I do not know them but it can happen

    They were not blood relatives. You may be confused. My cousin married his step cousin.

    Even if related then second cousins can marry. If there is no blood connection then there is nothing wrong with it at all either morally or legally.

    Angie try reading what I said, "IF there WAS a BLOOD CONNECTION" then I would be aposed I never said I was objecting to your relatives I also notice that you did not adress my concern on the second issue

    I don't see anything wrong with it morally or legally.

    Sorry, he did not wed for a sex partner for that reason.

    Think the whole reason we are so hypersensitive about closely related individuals marrying is the obvious reason of an increased risk of birth defects. That doesn't seem to apply in this situation so let them marry and live happily ever after.

    Yes that is true. There is no way they will have a child with a birth defect because of them being blood related. And it is not like they grew up as relatives either. My couins aunt did not remarry until he was an adult so his new wife was hardly in the picture.

    Well we are all related. But in my opinion, if there is no blood relation then no problem. There was a time when it was considered incestuous to marry your brother's ex-wife (Hamlet!)

    You kill me Tom! I've been meaning to ask you - are you for real? And I don't mean that in a bad way!

    I've been meaning to ask you the same thing too Angie - are you for real? :) For somebody who is a self-proclaimed theist, your questions (and answers to your own questions) indicate to me that you are very liberal for a catholic, and very thoughtful and most importantly, inquisitive. Kudos to you!
