Anonymous asked: hi, i was wondering if there’s anything wrong with dating your 4th cousin? And how to deal with family reactions?
There is nothing inherently wrong about dating or being in love with a relative, as long as it’s fully consensual. In many places in the world, first cousins can marry. In even more places, 2nd cousins, 3rd cousins, 4th cousins, etc can marry.
I’m not the person to ask about more complicated things like advice on how to deal with family reactions. I have made little suggestions before but there are things others would be better suited to help you with.
So I would recommend you visit some of these sites where you can find communities of people that would be more knowledgeable about this topic:
Community for cousin couples:
Facebook group for cousin couples or allies:
Community for consanguinamory of all kinds, including cousins:
I really hope that helps you. 🙂
