    i think im falling in love with my third cousin.

    We never grew up together so i really don't see him, like i see the rest of my family. we have been talking for a while now and we both feel the same. We both feel it will be such a problem to the family cause we know they are going to judge and think its wrong! i don't know what to do about it.. It's always on my mind..is there anyone out there who has been in this situation and knows where I'm coming from that can help me with my problem?

    Third cousin? That's almost the same as no relation at all.

    I suggest reading the article:


    Here is a quote from it:

    "It's likely that 80 percent of all marriages in history have been between second cousins or closer."

    that is not good.the bloodline is still close enough for children to be born with problem.some kids are healthy still with a close blood conection.

    This just made me feel so relieved that I am not alone!! I am going through the same exact thing.. I barely met this third cousin of mine a couple months ago and since then we have been talking a lot and we told each other how we feel about one another but the only thing stopping us is our family and what they will think, but honestly I would gladly like to be disowned by my family just so I could be with him because we share a strong connection and have so many things in common its not even funny and I have never in my entire life felt this way about a guy before. He lives in another state so we haven't seen each other since the night we met but I want to go visit him so badly. But anyways my answer to your question is that you should definetly be together!! It is hard to find someone who cares about you as much as you care about them so go for it I'm sure your family will learn to live with it and if not then who cares... it's your life so live it the way you want to live it and don't let anyone get in the way of your happiness!!!!

    I know how you feel, my third cousin kissed me and told me he didn't like me as a cousin but as a GF, and I was pretty scared then we both knew we loved eachother and we faced it, and now I love him and he loves me and the only time i see him is at school and when were alone we make out and noone knows it!!! If anyone knew it then mine and his reputation would be ruined, and alsowhen he comes to my house we try to get alone, it's not wrong, if you love him go for it, I did! And yes the same thing that happened to you happened to me!smile I hope my answer helped you out;)

    I know exactly where your coming from. She's technically my 2nd cousin once removed but I met her for the first time at my family reunion this year and we had never talked before. By the second day talking and hanging out I just always wanted to be around her. I keep thinking about the whole family thing but how can two people that get along so well and make each other this happy not be meant to be together!!! I don't get it!!!

    This is not wrong at all! For a while I felt the same way about my third cousin. We grew up together, and out of nowhere I started liking him and had a huge crush on him. We snuggled a little on the sofa and watched movies, and I loved it. But I got over my crush, and now we are just good friends. I only get to see him once every summer though
