Dating my step cousin
Technically speaking he is my step dads cousin, therefore making him MY step-cousin. The circumstances are different even here, without any blood.BUT, he isn't even really related to my step-dad, as his dad and my step-dad's mom (step-grandma) are both adopted. I mean, even if there were, if there had been no adoption whatsoever, would it really be wrong to date a step-cousin. In my opinion, incest is not present, as it would be through marriage, as no real relatives exist.Despite that, he loves me like crazy and would do anything for me. But, I am very close to my family, and all these lies are really getting to me. Now, my step-dad as I call him, not through marriage though,(not married to my mother) has his mom.This question comes from a Group Therapy post in our Très Sugar Community. I fell in love with my step cousin when he stayed with my family for a month.
Being with him, I have realized that it will require a lot to make our relationship work. But, I feel really anxious, fearful, and guilty because of all the lies that we have had to say to our families in order to be together.
