Quoting Nathaniel'sMom:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Pusherman:</b>" It doesn't mean it's wrong either."</blockquote> Is your husband your first cousin or second cousin?"

Is that your business? Nope.

I was talking about splashing cow pee all over you :S I wasn't judging her and saying that she's disgusting.

Personally I couldn't imagine that, being attracted to any of my male cousins in that way is just gross to me but as far as what other people do I don't really care. Although it is virtually unheard of here it is legal to Marry your cousin in the UK so if that is what 2 cousins choose to do so be it, it's not really my place to judge..... I do work with women from different cultures who are Married to their cousins, you know arranged Marriages and when they talk about it I don't bat an eyelid. It doesn't make me think any differently of them, I don't really think anything about it at all actually. I also don't really believe all this high increase SN, they have huge families and none of the kids have SN.

It was a legitimate question. If she doesn't want to answer she doesn't have to.

Does your culture practice multiple wives too?

Sometimes. It's not really common in our family, though. But I have a couple friends in polygynous marriages.

I was just curious because my ex is in a polygamous relationship. Are you Muslim?

I guessed as much. My ex isn't Muslim but a lot of his cousins are. They weren't born in Canada and they moved here when they were between the ages of 10-20 so they practice their culture still(a lot of people don't once they move here. Especially the younger generations).

It's legal in quite a few states. I don't look down on it, since it's none of my business what two consenting adults choose to do.

Quoting Pusherman:" I've heard that that is highly exaggerated. I'm married to my cousin. It's normal in our culture, since the families are very involved. It was kind of arranged but ultimately my choice. "


That is disgusting.

Yeah I see that a lot. I'm very connected with my roots even though I came to the U.S. young. What country is your ex from?

Do you know what the punishment is for married cousins in the states it isn't legal in?
