is this something you really wish to pursue though? and would it be worth it in the long run..weigh the pros and cons about things...right now you're both in college.is a huge dating opportunity for both of you.believe me long distance relationships are HARD..i was in one for nearly 8 months..things worked out, and i'm not saying it cant for you..i'm just saying if its early on in the relationship and things haven't gotten serious yet you might want to think things through before pursuing a serious relationship with each other..your DISTANT cousins, like really distant.i guess its not a big deal.he a cousin of one of your cousins or something?because in that case you may not even be blood related you know?
People move, families have hard times keeping relational ties over generations, sometimes grandmothers are boring and you just don’t give a fuck about their cousins (I’m not talking about you, Grandma Ceil. I don’t care about your cousins because of what a stone-cold bitch you are).
Most people just aren’t able to track their extended family that far out.
But if you really care about the guy I say stick with it. You have this one life to live, and if the two of you are happy, then this is your business.
The both of you should actually make a family tree together and both talk to a doctor about it. Jerry Lee Lewis married his first cousin back in the 50's....... I can understand your concerns about a child being born with a deformity or handicapped in some way, but I always thought this was "family" related..your brother or your Dad.
Who is this Dolly Harling from Smithtown, and why is she so badass? I mean from a present day realistic and genetic standpoint, usually your third cousin is a stranger. If someone is your third cousin, it means your grandparents were cousins.
