Took a couple paragraphs but she is a consenting adult who happens to be a second cousin.

Cousins are forbidden, and that's hot.

An adult male having a relationship with an adult female? That's just perverted. WWJD? We really don't know. The Big Book O Churchiness is silent on the matter. Might have had a problem with the out of wedlock aspect of it.

Probably not, because that would have gotten the "Obvious" tag.

The only reason I can see that this is "Unlikely" is because the cousin is over 18 and female

Actually, it's a southern thing.

A California-based Catholic priest who runs a television ministry has taken a leave of absence after admitting to a sexual relationship with his second cousin, the San Bernardino County Sun reported Thursday.


So what did he do with his first cousin?

It was a second cousin, not exactly incest by the standards of at least half of the world's population.

Second cousins share great-grandparents. According to the old maxim, "past third cousin, cousin doesn't count". Second cousins are a bit close for breeding purposes if you're going to make a habit of it.

First cousin and second cousin marriages are common in many, especially low population and rural societies where the closer family ties may reinforce status, wealth and solidarity. Scientists suspect that near-cousin marriages also promote gene pool health by filtering out the bad genes at the cost of some individuals but not so many that the gene pool collapses.

"Incest" (apart from the blatantly dangerous parent-child kind) is regulated differently in different cultures and at various times. In some US states first cousin or uncle niece, aunt nephew marriages are legal, in others they are not allowed.

Some traditional socieites have clan systems that do not correspond to genetic relationships closely: you might be forbiden to marry a raven clan member although they are only your tenth cousin, while being allowed to marry an eagle clan member who is your uncle.

The main issue here is that the man was a Roman Catholic priest, who is supposed to be chaste and celebate.

In any case, there's plenty of incest and cousin marriages even in the most urban socieites. I read an article in The Fortean Times about one "project" or "council estate" where inbreeding over five or six generations has produced an unusual number of birth defects such as extra digits and webbed fingers and toes.

It generally takes eight or nine generations of inbreeding to produce a lot of genetic problems from recessive traits. Even in rural villages, there's often sufficient influx of new "blood" to keep the genetic tares under control, although genetic testing and a careful tracking of family secrets would no doubt be useful.

When everybody is literally related to everybody else, it pays to know who was born out of wedlock and raised as their grandmother's or aunt's child, and that may be why you'd have a lot more family feuds, gossip and family interventions in the love lifes of young adults in very small towns or rural areas. Nobody wants to find out they married their half-brother or half-sister, let alone a sibling.

In cities, of course, the risk of marrying a close relation is generally slim as you have a lot of choices, but on the other hand, nobody is keeping track of their more distant relationships and some even don't know where their brothers and sisters are hidden.

The old prejudices and clichés about inbred hicks are partly based in fact, or else they wouldn't exist at all, but they are greatly exagerated. There are plenty of healthy, normal people in most rural areas, and some of them are even well-educated and intelligent people. Rich farmers often have enough money to send their sons or daughters to good universities. It's just as dangerous to assume that a farm boy is a stupid inbred ignoramus as it is to assume that the kid with the hippy dreadlocks and blue jeans is not the son of a millionaire professional family that has been running the town or the county for a couple of centuries. There's plenty of trust fund paupers and rich farmers in the world. People over-dress in cities and under-dress in the country.

If you had seen me dressed for tree-planting in the spring and fall while I was an undergraduate, you would hardly have expected me to have read Proust in the original French.

If you go to family reunions just to pick up chicks, you might be a redneck.

My parents are second cousins. They share great grandmothers who were twin redheads with the last name of Scarborough who were daughters of some famous general that fought in Canada. My mom knows the whole story.

Hypocritical priest, is hypocritical....whatever, moving on.

I fell in love with my second cousin.Due to family pressure we stopped dating when I was in High School.We were the same age and things fit well together. I guess if this were now days I would be in jail .
