Ethical married dating
The ban had nothing to do with our Bibles which we read regularly, don't we? If you must go to another province or state to marry your cousin so that nobody will report you then that is what you must do. They're born again of course because it is the pope who forbids cousin marriage, not the Bible.
Civil disobedience has a long history within the Christian community. When the people gathered by the thousands outside of Malacanang to oust Marcos that was against the law. Enjoy for your reading pleasure [color=#000099][/color]There's no excuse now that the whole world is populated besides this is not Egypt where you can marry your blood sister (not sure if they still practice this). This is currently the problem in Europe because the royal families were marrying only royalties, now they have serious health challenges.
The preferred marriage among the Israelites was cousin to cousin marriage and Jews to this day have an average I. of over 120 with the highest population of Geniuses in the world. Both Albert Einstein and Charles Darwin married their first cousins.
If such scientists as these had no fear of "defects" in their children then you should not. However, if you're really stupid and your cousin is really stupid then there is a much higher chance that your children will be really stupid. The fact is that cousin marriage was banned by the Roman Catholic church under 'Pope Gregory I' in an attempt to prevent the accumulation of wealth and power within families. This is not unheard of in the Philippines, The United States, and many other countries where Born Again Christians live in sufficient numbers to make such laws of no effect.
Apart, what is the measure of closeness where one could restrict dating? Growing up, i was so attracted to some of my cousines that ehhhh....
If not for d interpretation to it( INCEST ) and d taboo thing , i would have gladly married one of them. There are also spiritual consequences to it in africa, d risk is not worth d grave after-effect Umennajiego: The Bible does not forbid marrying your cousin so let's make sure in our zeal to help others that we don't confuse what our culture teaches with what the Bible teaches.
The questions one would ask here is- why do we date? Can this person am dating be my wife in the morrow?
Well to me there is no point dating whom you wont allow to get married to.

Marriage btwn cousins is still in breeding and could have negative genetic effects on an offspring of such relationship,after all you and your cousin share a grandparent!!!
There is no point dating who u cant boldly introduce to ur family as your guy or girl.
But if dating is just for sex, fun without a tomorrow, anybody can date anything.

Such a marriage is not allowed in my community, anyway, but don't say what is contrary to the words in the Bible. 113Disclaimer: Every Nairaland member is solely responsible for anything that he/she posts or uploads on Nairaland.
