you two have been together for 3 months and you both love each other so much. and as time goes by you've discovered that the two of you is a relative. you can't accept it since you both know that you two love each other so much. but what can you do, will you fight for your love? or will you just let go?will just let fate test you?or you will fight destiny even if destiny said you are not for each other.

Never happen to me before but i think the fact that the two of us didn't know we're related is probably because our bloodline isn't that close anyway, so i think i'll give it a try.

great advice either, do you think it would be likely like that?what if you two decided to get married and you've heard that if two bloodlines merges it can cause a birth defects to the baby.would you also like to take the risk?

Off course i won't take a risk to cause a birth defects to the baby, that's why i said i'll give it a try. It mean that first, we do research on how closely related are us by making a family tree, then we go to professional who understand the risk, then we show them the family tree and ask what their opinion. If they said that it would be risky, then either we should let it go or we adopt a child, it depend on the situation... if the professionals already said that it would be risky then there's no way i would have a baby knowing that risk. If this is the real situation of you or somebody you know, then i think drawing a family tree and ask to professionals would be the best thing to do to determine what your next move is.

I will not fight for it for there is no right to fight for a wrong situation. Maybe the love comes at the right time, but with wrong people and wrong situation. I will think for my kids future- it is scientifically proven that blood relation will caused abnormalities with the kids. Therefore I will never risk my kids for the sake of love.

I would say it depends on how closely you are related. It's not unusual not unexisting that many times cousins couple up. I'm not that sure about brother and sister though. That you might find less. I've heard that if you're too closely related, your unity may make babies with weaker DNA, and that that is why you should find somebody outside of the related gene pool. But you may find that couples consisting of cousins can make children who do not seem to have any genetic defects. Not more than anybody else anyway.

You are familiar with this: "..if you love someone learn to let go.."..and if the reason is valid, legal and biblical, letting go is best..
