    Don't! Just don't!

    I really hope this is a troll, because it's either a troll or a real weirdo.

    It's creepy and antiquated for a good reason. You'll alienate so many of your relatives. You haven't even mentioned the age of your cousin. But Say nothing, avoid your cousin, and seek therapy.

    Attraction to family members isn't a diagnosable disorder or anything, it qualifies as a sexual orientation.

    Just pretend the attraction isn't there and go on with your life, don't worry about it to much, i doubt you chose to be attracted to your cousin so there is no reason to blame yourself for it either.

    Okay maybe I wasn't serious. But I wanted to gauge a true opinion from people. Sorry.

    The emperor Claudius changed a law to marry his niece, Agrippina II, who was the daughter of Germanicus, sister of Caligula, mother of Nero.....And depending on the sources, between the two of them or just Nero, almost everyone related to Claudius was wiped out ----and then he killed his mom! Read Suetonius and Tacitus for more juicy details.........

    The primary reason for these laws is to prevent to spread of receive diseases.
    Stargardt's disease is an example in my own family.
    luckily I'm only a carrier.
    it did however render my mother and her brother legally blind by the age of 20.
    They can see but my mom makes people's heads disappear from her vision when they annoy her.
    I bet you can understand the problems that come from this disease.

    Part of why I agree with the sentiment of these laws.

    I am genuinely against marrying a blood relative. That's just . . . ewww . . .

    Even marrying an adopted cousin sounds pretty weird to me.

    I hope this is satire.

    Edit: Oh. It is.
