Were not close kin but somewhere down the line we are kin. Do you guys think we should stop talking and just be friends or should we ignore the fact that were cousins ??? He is everything that I dreamed of but a couple of days ago we found out that we are cousins.As we got to know each other, we soon discovered that in addition to looking alike, we were actually related.
But if you really care about the guy I say stick with it. You have this one life to live, and if the two of you are happy, then this is your business.
The both of you should actually make a family tree together and both talk to a doctor about it. Jerry Lee Lewis married his first cousin back in the 50's....... I can understand your concerns about a child being born with a deformity or handicapped in some way, but I always thought this was "family" related..your brother or your Dad.
But we were confused, how should we describe our relationship?
You may have heard some people use phrases like “she’s my fifth cousins, twice removed,” or “he’s my second cousin, nine times removed.” What does this mean and how could I figure out my relationship to my friend using these terms?
like if my aunt who married into my family has a sister and her sister has a son then we wouldn't be blood related..it?
bc its my AUNTS family not my uncles (who is my moms brother).it wouldn't be a blood relation if its a relative of my aunts..of confusing maybe..i tried.how exactly is he related to you? Like my great great great grandma and his great great great grandfather might be brother and sister.
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.
My mom came into the room and told us we are cousins but past fourth we are related somewhere down the line as well.
