Dating my blood related cousin

29 Sep

I’m less surprised by the fact that Liz and the Hair were, at closest, second cousins than I am by the fact that the Hair had a framed photo of his Grandmother’s cousin in his apartment. I mean, I understand that from a social perspective, sure, you could identify a person who is somehow vaguely related to you.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.I dunno - why is it I'm getting a visual of the Clampets and the Jedds and a pick up truck with women in the back wearing polka-dot babooshka's..........

So this is where we have to use our heads and “reason” these things out…. ” Now the bible does give SOME examples of blood relatives that are prohibited (aunt – Lev -14 — sister Lev 18:9; Deut —–granddaughter Lev ) but it’s not going to mention every single relationship by name because it already says “ALL BLOOD RELATIVES.” God said “all blood relatives” because He means what He says.[I’m aware that Abram married his half sister and that kings had multiple wives but this was either before these other laws were given or it was never intended from the beginning yet God allowed for whatever reason.

First identify all the common ancestors of A and B.

For instance, the common ancestors of a pair of first cousins are their shared grandfather and grandmother.

Now I am sure we are related some place going back, 3, 4th, or even 5th cousins.

What level is it an OK practice to "date" a distant relative???
