#43, shut the FUCK up you asshole, no shit they're distant cousins! You can use length if it fits that context, you ******* asshole! Some people are more distantly related to one person than another. It makes absolute PERFECT sense that she could say "long distant" cousins, and that's what she did? The FUCK made you think you can get on your high horse and act all elitist, you ******* ******?!
Wow, that was just plain awesome XD I love it when things like this happen on FML. OP - look at it this way. At least you found out now. There was an entire show dedicated to married couples who discovered they were related. One couple discovered they were BROTHER AND SISTER seperated at birth. Don't feel so bad now huh? Unless you DON'T enjoy the misery of others, you weird person you.
I'm a single child and all, and only have guy cousins, so I don't rly understand the "horrors" of incest. as I learned it only increases the chances of passing on a certain allele?....bro-sis I could see that's wierd in todays society cuz ur close and all, but if the two never even knew eachother...how's it bad?
when considering the social norm its considered taboo. on a biological level it increases the chance for the child concieved between the two to have health problems or even a mal proportioned body or disfigured physical appearence to being autistic or lower iq. other than that its not really such a problem
It sounds like you're not related by blood, so I don't see it as that big a deal. From what it seems, one of your parent's sisters married a man whose sibling is your boyfriend's mom or dad. Bizarre situation, but if that's the case, it's hardly incestual.
It's not that confusing. Say the original poster is Mary and her boyfriend is John. Mary's dad has a sister named Jennifer. Jennifer marries Paul. Paul's brother is John's dad. Jennifer is the aunt of both Mary and John, but Mary and John are not related by blood. She's Mary's aunt by blood relation (Mary > Mary's dad > Mary's dad's sister), but she's not related by blood to John (John > John's dad > John's dad's brother > John's dad brother is married to Mary). Jennifer is still considered John's aunt, despite being only related through marriage. So you can't have a mutual blood-related aunt and not be blood-related, but you can have, generally speaking, a mutual aunt and not be blood-related, which is what the original poster was (presumably) stating.
