Ok, I cant wait to see what answers I get here, so here we go. I went through a divorce a few years ago and since then my second cousin and myself who is also recently divorced have started an intimate relationship. We are both older, so its not like were gonna have babies together. We have always been friends since we were teenagers and would talk thoughout the years. Our talking isnt the reason both our marriages failed. Other reasons for that. Ive done some research and its not illegal, several famous people actually married their second cousin. None of our families know yet and we are to the point where we want to tell people so we dont have to hide it anymore. We enjoy each others company very much and I havent been so happy in decades. We both know there will be some negative feelings from the families, but being that were both in our 40's we dont feel like we need to explain ourselves. Just would like some feedback, I know this will stir up some crazy responses.

In my opinion, no big deal. Both adults, free to decide.

You've got to be kidding. Aren't there standards of decency anymore. Just because it 'feels right' isn't a good excuse for immorality.

I think you and your significant other need to look into yourselves. Then into each other. After that's done, follow your minds/hearts. Others will feel/say as they choose. You guys answer to yourselves first, the rest is just noise. Life is finite, there is no promise of tomorrow much less an easy choice. I wish you both the best!!!
