How you look at things. April 10 5: By William Saletan A new group is struggling for acceptance. The group is people who are married to their cousins. These people note that 20 percent of marriages around the world are between first cousins, that Albert Einstein and Charles Darwin married their first cousins, and that first-cousin marriage, while prohibited in half the United States, is legal in Canada and throughout Europe. Now a study by the National Society of Genetic Counselors says that having a child with your first cousin raises the risk of a significant birth defect from about 3-to-4 percent to about 4-to-7 percent. According to the authors, that difference isn’t big enough to justify genetic testing of cousin couples, much less bans on cousin marriage. From this, the media have concluded that marrying your first cousin is “OK. Will Saletan writes about politics, science, technology, and other stuff for Slate.

Christianity is a very large tent. From Appalachian snake handlers to the majestic liturgy of Eastern Orthodoxy, Christian beliefs run the full gamut. In this discussion, we will consider only the biblical history and acceptance of cousin relationships, as opposed to institutional creeds.

For much of the world’s population, the Bible is the final authority on right and wrong. This is true both of devout Christians as well as those who may have some vague, indiscernible root in the Christian faith. Perhaps Christianity was the faith of one’s parent or grandparent, and although the individual does not particularly follow the faith, they were ingrained from childhood that God is the ultimate authority, and the Bible is God’s instruction book to mankind.
Whether one truly believes in the Bible or not, it seems to have become a social standard to attribute one’s own assumptions of right from wrong on scripture. Unfortunately, many times the person who claims that something is “a sin against God,” or that an individual will “burn in Hell” for his actions or lifestyle have no clear understanding of what Scripture says on the subject.
Perhaps even more unfortunate is that many preachers, priests, and theologians have also allowed society to cloud their judgment on the issue, rather than to study what the Bible has to say on the subject for themselves. A look at Leviticus The Bible has a great deal to say about cousin marriage, and not once does it say anything negative. Let’s look first at how the Bible defines sexual impurity.
Either my parents had a sick sense of humor or they—because they did know that Yo-Yo was the name of a toy—either they had no more ideas, and they just said okay, ‘Yo-Yo.

He also decided to send messages to the future, dictating the generational names for 60 generations of Mas yet to come.
According to tradition, the clan genealogy that Ji Cang created was to be updated by the male head of the Ma family every 30 years. The Red Guards, acting on Mao’s decree that certain factions in the Communist Party were counter-revolutionaries seeking to revert to capitalist or feudalist ways, were engaging in a campaign to destroy the “Four Olds:
In the United States, every state prohibits you from marrying any of your ancestors or descendants including your brother, your sister, your half-brother, your half-sister, your aunt, your uncle, your niece, your nephew, your mother, your father, your grandmother, your grandfather, your great-grandmother, your great-grandfather, your child.
The relatedness between two people is expressed with two measures: The curious case of double cousins occurs when two siblings from one family each marry two siblings from another family. No incest involved, but it’s still kind of weird! For instance, a “second cousin, once removed” could be either your second cousin’s child or your parent’s second cousin. If there has been incest in your ancestry, you can calculate your relatedness coefficient to other family members by adding in any extra coefficients due to the incest.
For instance, if your parents are cousins, then your relatedness to your father is Despite what you may have seen on Futurama , it is not possible for Fry to be his own grandfather. Richard Dawkins gives a great explanation of how to calculate relatedness coefficients in The Selfish Gene: 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.
Once you have found a common ancestor, it is of course logically true that all his ancestors are common to A and B as well. However, we ignore all but the most recent common ancestors.
In some circles, we know, she would never be admitted, but with good dinners, and large parties, there will always be those who will be glad of her acquaintance; and there is, undoubtedly, more liberality and candour on those points than formerly. Thus Wickham still hopes to be able to marry a “well-portioned” woman in a “fortune-hunting” marriage even after his misadventure with Lydia. Jane Austen’s most explicit comment on this double standard is in her dismissal of the character Henry Crawford at the end of Mansfield Park who had run off with Mrs.
In this world the penalty is less equal than could be wished; but Collins [before the marriage]:
“Sibling cousins” are those who share one parent (as half siblings do) while the unshared parents are themselves siblings or cousins. That is, their fathers are brothers or cousins but they share the same mother, or their mothers are sisters or cousins and they share the same father.
A female reader, anonymous, writes 18 September Having children with anyone is risky. It all depends on your family’s genetic background. If there is a high level of genetic defects in your family, then obviously you might not want to have kids with your cousin. You can always be sterilized. Yes these stories of birth defects are heart breaking, but if they knew their family carried the gene, maybe they shouldn’t have taken the risk.

After attending Brookline High School and the University of Wisconsin, she returned to her childhood home to live with her older sister Lynda. Then, over the years, Sheryl Waldman faded from view until she vanished. And no one seemed to notice.
