Hi everyone,.. I would like to discuss about this topic. Why? because in some parts of the world,this thing is really happening. "BATAK" is a race in Sumatra Island, Indonesia. In "BATAK" cultures, one can be married to his/her own cousin. It is really true, and acceptable and they still do this nowadays. So this is how it works: "PARIBAN" : Pariban are "SONS OF FATHER'S SISTERS" and "DAUGHTERS OF MOTHER'S BROTHERS". This means that if you are a male, you can get married to your uncle's daughter from you mother. if you are a female, you can get married to your auntie's son from your father. Quite confusing, but the bottom line is, you can get married to your own blood, so what do you think of that???
