Dating your third cousin wrong

Unpopular Opinion: Dating Your Distant Cousin Is Fine

I can't find anything in the Bible about this subject, but we are taught that it is not right to date your family. I am having a problem with this because my child is dating my 3rd cousin, and in my heart I feel it is wrong. I am the LORD. The similar wording in Leviticus The following verses in Leviticus eighteen give a list of those who are too close of kin to marry. They include father, mother, step-mother, sister, step-sister, grandchildren, aunt, uncle, daughter in law, and sister in law.

Technically, this does not prohibit marriage to cousins. The fuller prohibition has come partly from a desire to keep as far as possible away from something that is spoken of with such serious warning in scripture. Another reason is cultural. As our society has become more numerous and diverse, it has become more repulsive to us to marry close to family. It has also become a joke to put down those who were considered to be from the sticks--that is, rural folks who did not know any better. But let us consider your particular situation. You refer to your child dating your third cousin. Just act like good friends, who genuinely enjoy each others company.

At this young age, that is what you want to do anyhow. Maybe just quietly set and play some vidya or something, and leave it at innocent paling around. All eyes will be on you, so tread lightly in as mature a manner as you can. It will help built the rapport you will need in the future.

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.

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. 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. I am married to my second cousin. It is legal just about anywhere.
