The fact that the relation between you two isnt blood I wouldnt think a child problem is a problem but if your concerned go to doctor and be sure.Life is too short to live for everyone else because then u will be unhappy just do what you feel is right and everything will be ok.We found out through my cousin b/c our relationship has been very private.We live a hour and a half apart from each other b/c were both in college.It is actually legal to marry your cousin in 26 American states, as well as in many countries around the world.These marriages are banned or regulated in China, India, the Balkans and the other 24 American states.
He is everything that I dreamed of but a couple of days ago we found out that we are cousins.she said they were blood related but its far down the line...honestly, if it doesn't bother you and it doesn't sound like youre close relatives at all then go ahead and pursue it..as well go for it rather than live with regret..hour and a half isn't that bad.boyfriend and i were 4 hrs apart..i was going back for my 2nd year in college and he was starting his first..we'd only been dating for about 2 1/2 months before i left but things had gotten kinda serious fast(we'd only realized how close wed gotten when it came time for me to to leave)..yea, long distance was very hard.it has its perks!those reunions are Amaaaaazing keeps the relationship fresh.. His dad nephews are my 8th or 9th cousins by blood. I didn't know nothing about him or the other way around.is this something you really wish to pursue though? and would it be worth it in the long run..weigh the pros and cons about things...right now you're both in college.is a huge dating opportunity for both of you.believe me long distance relationships are HARD..i was in one for nearly 8 months..things worked out, and i'm not saying it cant for you..i'm just saying if its early on in the relationship and things haven't gotten serious yet you might want to think things through before pursuing a serious relationship with each other..your DISTANT cousins, like really distant.i guess its not a big deal.he a cousin of one of your cousins or something?because in that case you may not even be blood related you know? Laws prohibiting relationships between cousins are only applicable to first cousins.Fourth cousins are not close enough genetically to support a charge of incest or an increased risk of birth defects.I rely on my cousin for guidance in certain situations and my Ex was my Best friend, can anyone reply to this post , if they were ever in this situation.thanks If you are not related by blood, you are not actually cousins.Two people from the same gene pool share common genes obviously!If some of those shared genes are recessive (meaning unexpressed) there is a 1 out of 4 chance the child will inherit the active gene.
