From my fathers side I have over 26 FIRST cousins from his side only. I have only seen some of them ONCE or twice in my life! They live in france and
morocco. I live in London.
Let's just say that I might find it a bit weird, but it's normal in morocco to marry cousins.
I guess having over 26 first cousins changes the view you have on cousins, none of them are close, I never grew up with any of them, and I have only
seen them once or twice.
Plus they are beautiful. I mean really beautiful, like jessica alba or prettier. Also some are half french half moroccan, good combo.
But they are my cousin, and I have grown up in London, things are different here than in morocco. But my father(moroccan) has asked me about the
possibility when I'm ready to marry. !!!!!!??!
So my answer is, I HAVE NO IDEA!!
But if I grew up around one of them, NO WAY!
Now I am not weird, it's just that things are different fo me than maybe others.
Reason being I don't really "know" many of them, and there is a cultrual difference where one side it is acceptable, maybe even recommended, and
the other side where it is more like "EWWWW"
I'm stuck in the middle of that.
So I'm definetly gonna try and avoid marrying a cousin. There are plenty of other women, why a cousin? They say because you can trust them more. But
