There are a lot of people I love that I wouldn't have sex with. There are a lot of women I would have sex with but not marry. And at this stage of
my life I don't see much point in getting married without a good reason.
You may not recall being influenced to be heterosexual, but if you could review your life you might be able to pick out the influences. I'd bet Linda

You should ponder whether your father has trouble understanding cousin's sexual attraction or your cousin's decision to be in a relationship that may
not have a prosperous future. Would he think differently if your cousin's significant other were a billionaire?
