here's something I always wondered...is it taboo to have a sexual relationship with a second cousin (ie. A child of a first cousin of one's parent)? It seems a bit more acceptable than first cousins, but in my family for instance, probably would be really frowned upon.
from what i hear 2nd cousins are as genetically similar as any stranger you would meet on the street. So basically a 2nd cousin isnt close enough to be considered incest (neither is 1st but the US is still the only country in the world that has laws against it)The best way to deal with this is just don't tell anyone you are "cousins" unless you really really have to. If you want more info on this private msg me and I'll send you some links with more info that may help.
