    Earlier today on tv, i saw on a show where some lady and a guy were about to get married.  however, right before the wedding, the mother found out something very strange about the bride to warn her son about.  apparently this girl is actually...HIS HALF SISTER.  However, the mother didn't know this until today, and tries to warn her son about it, and the son is already in love with a girl that he didn't even know that was his half sister until today.  My proposal to you guys reading this is...what if this happened to you?  what would you do if the woman you loved, turned out to be your half sister right before the wedding.  Would you call it off immediately?  Or as a coworker of mine joked about, "hey they already incested anyway, so they might as well."  lol of course, i didn't even know that was a freaking word either..."INCESTED?"  wow, never heard that one before.

    As for you ladies reading this, lets flip the situation around here for a minute. you meet the man of your dreams and he's perfect in every way, that you want.  however, you have no idea he's your half brother, and you sleep with him a few times unknowing of that fact.  then right before the wedding, your mom tells you that he's your half brother, then what would you do about it?

      That is because INCESTED is not a word..incest is sex between proscribed individuals and depending on where you live incest has different rules. In most countries..probably all..relationships between parents and children are forbidden as are sibling relationships. There are lots more. The reasons are not just moral they are biologically sound . I won't go into it but research it if you are interested:)

    Personally, if I'd found out anything of the sort about my husband (very hypothetical here since he's older than both my parents tongue) then I'd probably marry him anyway...and adopt kids if we wanted them...and probably take some permanent measures to make sure no biological kids resulted from the marriage.

    If people think that someone might have a retarded or deformed child out of an incest relationship are not using their tiny brains. Human's are just like animals, and a woman can have a normal healthy child just from becoming pregnant, it doesn't matter who the father is. If both sexes involved in the birth of a baby are healthy, the baby will more than likely be healthy too.

    All this stuff about deformed children from incest is a bunch of BS and scare tactics, to keep the thought of having an incest relationship out of people's minds. Not that anyone should have that kind of relationship, I'm just saying the whole abnormal child thing is a bunch of bull.

    Sadly, I know of a story where a girl had a healthy child, and it was discovered that the child she had was also her father's, and not the boy that she had been dating. He had apparently been having sex with her for years, and she just never faught it. I have also heard of the brother/sister thing. But the more frequent would be the Uncle or Cousin, being the father.

    Of course, the worst was the doctor who was performing artificial births using his own sperm on 99 different women, and I heard some of them were related to him. Their children all turned out fine. But, it sure pissed a lot of them off. That man is doing serious jail time.

    As for the original question, I recently discovered that a girl I used to work with is one of my cousins. We worked together for over 12 years, and never knew it. Then she says to me...boy it's a good thing we found out, because I always thought you were cute and wanted to ask you out on a date. I then of course had to tell her that I was gay, and I wouldn't have went out with her anyways. It's actually kind of funny.

      Wow, I don't know how I could've missed this post, as it seems your chalk full of interesting opinions on this matter. I apologize for not giving it the proper attention sooner, as i was grossly unaware of it.  To be honest, I'm not exactly sure about the whole inbreeding theory, as I never really bought into it either.  For if that was the case, then the royal family in Brittain would be bunch of stup....well never mind.  Moving gingerly on.  big_smile lol j/k  Seriously though, I do think it's rather sick that anyone would want to sleep with their own family members, as that's just....well gross.

      Anyways, I do appreciate you taking the times to share your thoughts with us again Brian, as once again you've shown that you have a lot of interesting things to say when it comes to forums.

    First, I would vomit and then hug my half-brother/sister & say, "OMG, I'm so sorry it's come down to this." INCEST = EW...

    What's disturbing is the mother.  I guess if she had given the girl child up for adoption, it still would be her responsibility (at some point in her son's life)as a parent to mention the fact that he could have a sister out there somewhere.  At least that would have given the son some warning that he should check into his relationships (while dating) to make sure the woman of his dreams isn't his sister. Planning my own wedding right now, I would be devastated to learn my fiance was my sibling.  I think he would be devastated as well.  Relationships are hard enough, but to discover you are very closely related....disturbing...and to wait to drop this bombshell the day before the wedding?

    Ok, here is what I would do.

    1. Throw up.

    2. Throw up again.

    3. Throw my guts up.

    4. Call up "The Brother", tell him all bets are off (meaning the wedding) . and no more hanky panky, ewwww!
