I was in love with my cousin(s) for a few weeks each. They never found out. It will be over soon, don't worry!

Hey, Girlfriend - it was just a joke! At the time I felt as though I was in love but I was only 13 and I was in love with life and everyone in it!

(As I said, they never even knew, for to them I was just their annoying kid cousin that followed them around all the time!)

dhiviya, first off, I don't even know if its legal to marry your cousin where you live. Second off, inbreeding might cause genetic problems for any future children you two have. Third off, maybe you could find another non-related guy with all the good qualities you see in your cousin.

Think before you type
Age and maturity may have played a dynamic role in your "love" episode. Just make sure you understand the meaning the next time you want to use the word.

It's easy to joke about this!
Marrying a cousin is really not socially acceptable these days! I would say you have a very strong love for a relative that has become sexual, obviously. I would hope you venture outside the family bloodline to meet someone else. I'm not a doctor. I do know that there's more potential for birth defects or health problems when having a child with a close blood relative. Good luck!

Thank god i dont have hot cousins...
i dont even think its legal..
and even if it is, isnt it a HUGE turnoff knowing that hes your COUSIN?

butyeah i do want to know whether it causes any genetic problems
ive heard alot of rumours when i was kid (they were mostly jokes) about how the kid can come out deformed or disabled or something, ive always dismissed them as fake but are they?

I've never done anything sexual with a cousin, and never would as this is not legal in Canada, but when I was 16, I was visiting some cousins in northern Ontario and while there, my 2 cousins, both boys (one 13 the other 16) and I used to skinny dip in the creek. I know that I was fasinated with the penises on these two boys as they were a good size, and a few times I saw them get erect, but we did not have sex of any form. All they got was to look at my naked body as I swam around, I of course I saw theirs.

it's not that easy
being in love is not easy anyway but in your situation it's way too hard. i understand if it is a true love and you cannot imagine your life without him but if it's just a crush then you'd better try to get over it. because your life is going to be too hard for you two and for the people around you, have you thought about your parents, relatives, friends of the family? Will they approve? And will you both feel good without their approval?

go for it. medically speaking, the risks aren't that much higher (only about 1-2% increase in genetic risk), and its legal in about half the states in the u.s. and in most of europe/canada. don't let unfounded social norms keep you from love!
