#46: No, they will have two of each, just because the parents remarry doesn't mean that the biological father/mother disappears...
lol! you'd still be aunt and uncle if you got together or not, so go for it!
Hey KylesGirl52, since when has 'blood' meant anything? You mean 'related by blood'? Then no, that's not completely true. Incest is sexual relations between members of a family. You can't say step-brothers and step-sisters are an exception, because they are family too. Your personal beliefs don't make incest any more right or wrong.
Hey Privations - My wife and I are in the same family and we have sex. Incest? Ummm, I don't think so. Incest is sex between biologically related individuals. Closeness of biological relationship may be a question as to whether or not it's incest, but marriage does not create a new pool of potential incest participants.
I just had a quick look on teh interwebz (yeah, I know - checking facts, call me crazy) and in some US states, sex between step-siblings IS classified as incest. In Georgia, where OP is posting from, this is not the case though, so there's no legal barrier to the relationship.
Wow, there are states who classify relationships between step-siblings as incest? I always though incest is forbidden because of the possibility that the children may be disabled if the parents are blood related. Why should two people who aren't blood-related at all not be able to have a relationship, just because their parents married?
