    I hope that Echo is adopted. I want Norman to be happy together with her!

    Please don’t let this be ruined. Echo and Norman
    should be together, they are sooo good for each other.
    Echo is adorable.

    They could be distant cousins….many people
    have married (disant?) cousins. Please let it
    be so.

    Checked online. No states prohibit the marriage of
    second cousins.

    Maybe it’s just the thought of it . . .

    The cousin of my cousin is no kin of mine, if my uncle married her aunt.

    OK, checking back to the start of this, the bride is
    a neice of a cousin of Norman’s Dad. Mmmm, what
    does that make the bride to Norman, would she be
    a like, third cousin?

    There goes any future story lines.

    All right, I got it, checked online. "If the neice is a daughter of one of his cousins (i.e., they are the child of one of the cousins brothers or sisters) they would be a second cousin.

    If they are the child of one of the cousins brothers or sisters
    spouse, there is no relationship, though most families would
    refer to them as a distant cousin."

    Yeah~they may not be related!

    No, Echo, hold on—don’t – throw
    it away yet.

    On the other hand, if the bride was a full blood relation, Honeybunch would more likely have said “She’s your cousin’s daughter” as that would also be true – referring to a different cousin.

    It is a fact that everyone is related to everyone else. A child born in the year 2000 would have about 4 MILLION direct line grandparents in the year 1500. Since there were lots of cousins mating, and it is figured on 25 year generation cycles, that number could be larger or, most likely a little smaller. But the # of grandparents doubles with every 20-25 year step back in time.

    They could at least find out how each is related to the bride before they give up the idea of a relationship. It may be there is no blood at all.

    Hmm…“happy together,” eh?

    Research has shown that first cousins have no more chance of having a child born with abnormalities than any random pair of people, so the taboo against first cousins marrying is really just a social taboo
