We figured out that we have the same great great grandfather and are 3rd cousins. He called his brother and his aunt to see what they thought about us dating, and both said the thought it was a funny coincidence but we were distant enough to date. He told me that he was ok with it but that he could tell I was still weirded out by it. I am weirded out some, but i like him enough to try and get over it. I am not looking for a serious relationship with him, but would like to continue seeing him. Is it normal to date my third cousin????

Is it wrong to date your third cousin?

I say go for it!!! If you finally found someone who cares about you as much as you care about them then why should you let anything get in the way of that. I believe in God and I believe that everything happens for a reason. You cant help who your attracted to. As for your parents I too am in the same situation as you and I am very much in love with my cousin and we want to be together.

Once you both turn 18 you can find somewhere to live together and your parents can't stop you because you guys are already legal adults.


The point is life is short so you should hold on to the things that make you happy. Hopefully your parents will accept you guys one day. I am dating my 3rd cousin and my family is fine with it. And his is to.

But what they dont know is I am pregnant with his child. But we love eachother very much and i am happy to have a child with him. I'm dating my third cousins also. But people also came to realize that I don't care what they say so they just stop talking about it. I don't care what people think about me. They can do or say whatever they want.

Is It OK To Marry A Third Cousin?

Because I love him so much. So go on with your life. That's all that matters. Ok so I have a friend who asked me for help. She wants to know if it's ok to date third cousins. The guy is her dads cousin, cousins son. I have a sister who is going out with our 3rd cousin We heard one of my teachers say it would be better for you too be 4th cousins.. Because you are down the line more Does it really matter? You need to be a member in order to leave a comment.

TripleL, First off, God doesn't disapprove of first cousins, and actually insisted on it on several occasions. I agree with everything Hawk has told you! He's wise, listen to him. The question upper most in my mind is, and this is not to belittle you, how did you determine that you are 3rd cousins?

The reason that I ask is that many that come here are a little fuzzy on how to determine the degree of cousin-ness.

  2. Is dating your 3rd cousin incest?!
  3. Are You Normal?.

I was just curious. If he's your dad's cousin's son, that would make him your second cousin. Your dad's first cousin is actually your first cousin once removed. Posted February 19, Triplet, cousinsinlove7 is correct he is your second cousin. And you are right, it doesn't matter which cousin he is. What do you think?

Is this wrong or okay? Are you sure you want to delete this answer? Sounds like he is your second cousin twice removed.

This is NOT incest. But all that should matter anyway is how you feel about each other and what you want, not what anybody else calls this.

  • There are some countries and a little over half of US states where the bigotry against marriage equality extends to preventing first cousins from marrying, but there are many places where marrying a first cousin is legal and common. But with a second cousin twice removed, there's no problem whatsoever.

    There is no rational reason for keeping laws or taboos against consanguineous marriage. Personal disgust or religion is only a reason why one person would not want to marry their cousin, not why someone else shouldn't do it. An adult should be free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage with ANY consenting adults.

    Youthful experimentation between close relatives close in age is not uncommon, and there are more people than you'd think out there who are in lifelong healthy, happy relationships with a close relative.

    It isn't for everyone, but we're not all going to want to have each others' love lives, now are we? This argument can be refuted on several fronts. Some consanguineous relationships involve only people of the same gender. Not all mixed-gender relationships birth biological children. Most births to consanguineous parents do not produce children with significant birth defects or other genetic problems; while births to other parents do sometimes have birth defects.
