Okay, I need help! I am a 16 year old girl who likes her first cousin who is 30! I know that there is an age difference but that doesn't big me at all! He acts like a teenager around me! When we are together, whenever one of us talks, we are staring into each others eyes. He is always around me and if I need help he is the dirt one there! I really believe that he likes me back, but I don't want to ruin or friendship if I tell him that I like him? What should I do? I only see him a couple times a year but each time I see him, I fall harder and harder for him! I really need help!!! Thx if you do!!!
Marriage between 1st cousins is quite common. Johann Sebastian Bach, Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, John F Fitzgerald, Thomas Jefferson, FDR, and lots of other famous people married 1st cousins. In many places cousin marriage is the norm because it is a way to keep wealth in the family. 1st cousins genetically only share a grandparent so there is only a slight additional risk of genetic abnormalities. I'm not aware of any religious ban against cousin marriage and the only country where 1st cousin marriage is illegal is the US and even here it is illegal in 24 of the 50 states but even those 24 recognize 1st cousin marriages from states where it is legal. All that said you are too young. If you still feel the same way when you are an adult than you might pursue it but for the time being he is off limits.
Yea. No. You're 16, this is a crush, an inappropriate one (though I'm sure many of us have had those before), but you'll get over it. Hormones are whack, feelings are quite fickle at this age.
your family....... thats weird n gross cause like i wouldent even date my step brother thats still weird plus your not even legal just gross hes to old....
Hey, I know how you feel, I have a crush on my youngest uncle. Just try to avoid him and deny yourself that you like him. It worked for me!
