Guess it is a good thing that with one exception, none of my cousins are hot.

I've had classmates whose parents were too closely related, and in both instances the consequence was near baldness and the girls had to wear wigs.

One of the girls had a brother born without a hand.

Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

British tabloids tend to go overboard with illustrations accompanying stories. I think that particular photo was used for effect, a dramatization. His condition is probably the result of Proteus or NF 1, not the result of inbreeding.

1st cousin marriage used to be fairly common in western culture as well.  The difference is now we understand the genetic aspect of it.  Of course, Islam is stuck in the 12th century.

I thought that might be the case.

Thanks, aligncare!

In the wonderful new adaptation of Jane Austen's Mansfield Park, they try to disguise the fact that you are rooting for the heroine, Fanny Price to marry her first cousin.....   **nononono*
