Why cousin marriage or sex is considered very odd in some countries?

Superb Opinion

  • This is not ethic for me. And incest born kids may have a number of genetic disorders. These children are at greater risk of congenital disorders, death, and developmental and physical disability. I also want to say incest marryings are common in the muslim majority countries. I live in this kind of country and people describe cousin marriges as a perfect and normal thing. Even some families force their daughters ( such as my best friend) to marry their cousins.

    • DM more? Im curious on your opinions

    • @CasualObserver2023 Why not

  • Because cousins are family plus there's an increased risk of genetic disease, disorders, malformations and a shorter life expectancy. It's not normal here in south america

    • I think ancest is only immediate family members

    • I never said incest, it is a consanguineous marriage tho

  • In some countries it's illegal and pretty sure most places in America where I'm from cousins marriage or sex is illegal but in some cultures, they do marry their cousins
    and marry them and some laws can't go above one's culture

    • Thanks For MHO :)

  • Because there are so many people here. So why would you marry your cousin? Marry someone who is genetically different from you.

  • I would say that's the norm in almost all muslim nations. That is like 50 countries lol

  • I think it depends on the state or country you live in... I don’t know how often it happens but I know the rate for birth defects is much higher when relatives have kids though

  • Because incest is considered taboo.

    • I think ancest is only immediate family members

    • Nope. Incest is between biological close relatives, which include cousins. Legality of it varies, but it is still considered incest.

  • Because it's your blood family

  • Because our culture tells us it's wrong so we grow up thinking it is.
    In reality, so long as every generation does not do it, your cousin is genetically different enough to you that complications are almost non-existent.

  • cause sex within the immediate family is odd. i mean normally you'd have a realtionship similar to a "brother" or "sister" with a cousin.

  • Coz they are odd, unethical in some countries.

  • because not all countries do it

  • There are medical considerations to incest - which this is. If both people are consenting I’m not against it per se. But having children could be seen as abuse.

  • Different Countries, Different beliefs!

  • some families are so close that in some countries it is like sex with you Brother

  • Because it's incest

  • Why what's the problem

  • U wanna bang ur cousin

  • Because they're relatives

  • They consider it wrong yet they go and fuck their own daughters!!! Go figure! Hypocrites!

  • Probably because it’s too close to the same gene pool if they have kids
