This is a question Siblings

Brothers and sisters - can't live with 'em, can't stove 'em to death with the coal scuttle and bury 'em behind the local industrial estate. Tell us about yours.

Thanks to suboftheday for the suggestion -we're keeping the question open for another week for the New Year

I went with my parents and brother (related post, honest) to see the Grandparents yesterday
Had a lovely day.

However, it turns out that another branch of the family (my grandmother's brother's son's wife; my first-cousin-once-removed) is trying to set up a get together so the family can stay in touch. My side of the family has never met this other lot, despite being so closely related (relatively) and her father (my grandmother's brother; keep up!) recently died so she's keen to organise this a.s.a.p.

Anyhoo, this comes up in conversation yesterday and there is some serious suggestion that I might like to come along as there are three lovely daughters. I got the distinct impression I was being match-made with one of my second cousins.

That said, having seen the photos, I can confirm that they are HOT! Yes: their mother sent my grandparents for Christmas a digital photo frame mostly full of pictures of, I kid you not, the three lovely daughters.

So the question is this: how wrong is it for me to seriously consider boning my own second cousins? Preferably all three at once.

Also, am I actually living sometime in the eighteenth century?

Since this is b3ta I should probably point out that they are all of legal age...

Well, we're going to need to see the photos first.....

I don't have the photos...
It's not like they were handing out prepared dossiers. Almost, but not quite...

Unless some evidence is procured
I'll have to call bullshit.

The First Rule of B3ta: pictures or it didn't happen.

This isn't helping me with my moral / genetic dilemma...

How can we advise without access to all the evidence...

(gah ! Just post some pics of the Olsen triplets or something)

It looks a bit like bragging
but it really doesn't feel like it.
I am really in two minds about this, but more surprised that anyone would seriously try to pair off relatives like this...

EDIT: Also, isn't there only two Olsens?

Two Olsens?
There is now... *Coughs*

Well, you learn something new every day.

yeah, why not
yeah, 2nd cousins is distant enough to bone. 1st cousins are only for experimentin'. Hell, aren't Liz and Phil the greek closer than that?

And the risk of genetic badness is pretty small if you decide children are appropriate.

So, with the consent of b3ta I'll begin the wooing / arranged marriage preparations.

*votes yes*
Hell, if they're hot, go for it. My best mate at school's parents were first cousins and she turned out fine.

(In retrospect this may have influenced my thinking more that I realised at the time.)

If she's a normal from first cousins then it must be fine...!

If you are worried about the inbreeding aspect
Then I'd start off with checking to see if theirs any history of hereditary diseases in either side of the family. You'll probably be ok as you are not that closely related. Of course if you are from Kentucky then forget it :)

I should probably secure an opportunity to procreate first...
Interesting read, though... No blue people in my family, I'm fairly certain of that!

your username says all I think on the matter.

Knew it was there for a reason....

want to avoid inbreeding
just do them in the gary, then its not really incest.
