Today I went on a date with my long time crush only to find out that we are distant cousins. FML

That’s no problem. Marrying first cousins is controversial, but legal in some states. Beyond that, there’s no legal or genetic reason to avoid someone.

How distant? Technically, you are distant cousins with everyone. The only differences are how distant and knowing the specific relationship.

Hey, at least you share something in common! Namely, Ancestors.

Considering that we all can all have our heritage back to mitochondrial Eve then we are all distant cousins. The relationship depends on how distant you are. As long as you are not first or second cousins then you are getting into safe territory.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt married his distant cousin. She didn’t even have to change her last name upon marriage as her last name was already Roosevelt.

distant cousins isn't your cousin or first cousin... so why the **** not? because of who? who's stopping you? Is this the 1920? or 2019? I forget
