Hey, if you've been discussing it for 54 years she probably can't have kids anymore. SO go ahead and marry her!
there is a biological reason, actually, its called inbreeding. Siblings who mate are at greater risk of birth defects because they share many of the same recessive traits that can cause problems
Well said without resorting to use that god awful R words .
Not true, imsunwyo.
even if one accepts that premise, allowing it would then allow said successive generations of inbreeding.
not true or maybe research in 1957
are you a troll looking to stir things up, or are your parents brother and sister?
ah, well, 50 years ago it was a legitimate question for the lay person. nowadays you can easily find out all the biological reasons by searching google. try "******" and "inbreeding".
No biological reason!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????<br />
Um sorry honey........please REgoogle.
So now I'm curious. Your sister asked this question a very long time ago, presumably when you were both still children. What motivates you to ask this question on a public site now?
I breed Arabian horses. The Bedouin mastered the techniques of selective inbreeding. Their methods including some callous testing for qualities of hardiness, endurance, temperament and trainability, including rigorous selection for good bone structure (conformation). They memorised character traits and pedigree for many generations using poetry. When a horse had developed a majority of desirable genes, with few and rare undesirable, they would then breed back to parent or sideways to full sibling, for up to five generations, to increase the pre-potency, that is, the strength of dominance of the desired genes when bred to an out-cross, and the strength of transmission of those genes down through subsequent generations. After four to five generations of inbreeding, the fertility of both mares and stallions diminishes. Line breeding to a 25% relative can avoid loss of fertility, but must be equally fastidious in selection.
I think the greatest dangers for human siblings inbreeding is actually in the condensation of dysfunctional family dynamics.
Psychologists guess that we'd be very lucky to find 3% of families without some degree of dysfunction. This would mean that for the majority, the results long term could be disastrous.
you missed a section then
Then if you have a doctorate at Stanford and you believe that inbreeding is ok, it means you have either lost your mind, or wasted 50 years of your life learning nothing :)
Uhh...I guess you can get married but no sex or else you'll have retard babies...so what's the point of marriage?
if it where about the babies many other ones shouldn´t marry too ...
True...some people don't deserve kids
Sometimes it is possible to love someone so deep that you do not need to have sex with them. Now in that situation. I ask you ? If they don't have sex. Would they let a brother and sister who made a promise not to. Would they let them. Marry each other and would you let them ? Thanks.
The thought alone is wrong.
the only things i know is that to the family is disgustting,and not all people are ok with sister & brothers marriage plus supposably because the childs might have birth defects. i can surelly dissagree with that i have 2 baby girls with my blood brother and we dont have retart babies or any defects on them at all. they are actually verry active super smart.
To enjoy this debate i suggest let us go back to that era which biology predicted inbreeding had occured, i personally think there so so many adams and eves in every continent, or every part of world wherever humans of that particular kind were born, like in Africa there must be Negroid adam and eve, Australia Aboriginal ancestors ...... and now the question will be who were their first one.... They were born in Bermuda traingle and grew up did inbreeding and than went back to Bermuda....now we cant go there.
Hi! I'm a little too late to answer this one, however, the question is very much welcomed by almost all of us.<br />
So, why can't brothers and sisters get married? Medical facts are strange and unreliable in this particular regard as not many have reported the marriage in the first place so bearing a child with lots of complications in delivery is almost out of question. If the, female is healthy then for sure she can produce.<br />
At the same-time, some cultures do not support this relationship and this concludes the marriage part, otherwise intimate relations between the two(real bro n sis) is prevalent. <br />
Now, as for the question, our society, culture, religion and personal characteristics have always encouraged to look beyond...a sister. Here, she commands love, respect and is part of a particular family that discourages the marriage between the two since the very birth.<br />
But, to all those that have got married to their very own sisters, good job done...as this is who you are today. <br />
If Prostitution, Gay sex, Lesbians etc can be encouraged then why not brother and sister marriage.
I date my half-sister, I love her, She loves me, to tell the truth she that asked me, and we're okay,<br />
we don't have kids yet<br />
but there's no problem in date and marry your sister/brother<br />
the only thing that is wrong and forbidden is father, mother, grnd-father/mother (God forbbiden )<br />
the rest is okay<br />
P.S. - I'm sorry for my english, if it's wrong
They can if they feel so. Who cares for society, anyway. If the individuals feel that they should marry, they should go ahead.
I love my brother very very very much... when i was younger i wanted to marry him but its wrong to marry your sibling...now i love him but in a different way and he loves me too, and when we both have our families it wont mean that we don't love each other.... God did not make siblings to marry each other because there would be birth defects and it is not good...
being gay is waaaaay more repulsive then brother and sisters being together<br />
if the government decides to condition you for insest it will seem normal.<br />
just like there are homose3xuals running the government ,maybe one day the government will be run by brothers and sisters.<br />
you will accept what ever they condition you to believe<br />
humans are like sheep they follow the herd.<br />
and no i don't even have a sister but if i did and we both wanted it i would not ask the public for permission.i am an individual ,i don't let the majority tell me how to live.<br />
people should just mind their own business.
I don't think its wrong. I have 8 sisters. And thou I love 7 of them as that sisters. I do love one sister more. I wouldnt dare tell her this. But I have been unlicensed with her for many years. Its not that i think its wrong to love her that way. But i dought she feels the same. That is why I have choosen to distance myself from her. If that makes Me a freak then so be it. But I believe the heart comes first social stigma can suck it.
I have read that fertility is also a problem, and have read a number of stories of siblings having unprotected sex for years with no pregnancy resulting. I think that if I had a sister as a life partner and wanted children I would adopt or use a fertility clinic and donor *****. Of course you can live together without children, as many couples do. Nothing wrong with that. I can't imagine marrying my sisters, primarily because I wouldn't want to marry someone as crazy as me.
There are biological reasons that it is illegal inbreeding is the number one cause of developmentally disabled children are you from idaho or utah?
yeah i can i attended a conference on such matters unfortunately i was a case manager at the time and 1/3 of my developmentally disabled adult clients were products of ****** they have distinct physical features small heads small ears set farther back on the skull than normal large tongue making talking difficult some are deaf none are going to ever live a normal life
obviously you need to aim your research on genetics and genetic disorders genetically we are made to have a large gene pool even animals display abnormalities when to closely bred to siblings and parents duh
there is actually biological reasons, that is called inbreeding, and it's a major cause for illnesses and much more.
Micro/Macro evolution, Science, Psychology, Sociology and ultimately transhumanism leads us out of darkness. Likely, the reason we no longer marry siblings is family dynamics and phantom genetic defect stories passed down thru the ages (likely to keep siblings from hooking up). Yes, genetic abnormalities do occur, but as mentioned previously the rates are the same among a local community as say a brother and sister. In short any member of a local community/clan/family containing defective pieces of genetic code 'alleles' increases risk of phenotypically expressing abnormalities. Society could make a rule that you must marry someone from another continent other than where your genetic makeup comes from to limit this possibility. This will dramatically decrease the chance of a genetic abnormality in a child. I say this because that is the premise given so close relatives do not have sex.<br />
Personally, if I loved my sister and my sister loved me, I would not hesitate to marry her (as an adult mind you). Culture, Family upbringing, ignorance, hysteria, and fictional phantom genetic anomalies is a heavy weight to counterbalance this issue. Someday, society will educate and psychologically prepare mankind to overcome ignorant tribal beliefs, rituals & condamnations. <br />
I reflect on society with a quote by Rene Dubos: “It is often by a trivial, even an anecdotal decision, that we direct our activities into a certain channel, and thus determine which of the potential ex<x>pressions of our individuality become manifest. Usually we know nothing of the ultimate orientation or of the outlet toward which we travel, and the stream sweeps us to a formula of life from which there is no returning. Every decision is like a murder, and our march forward is over the stillborn bodies of all our possible selves that will never be.” <br />

Actually the is a biological reason buddy...<br />
Suppose two random people(not siblings) marry.. then their offsprings will have both the characteristics of mother and father. So if you compare one parent and the child..the child will possess newer and better characteristics than the parent.<br />
If sibling marry then as both the siblings have almost identical genes so no new characteristic will be found in the offspring.<br />
So this will create a major problem in human evolution.<br />
I hope i have satisfied you with my answer..
