Why Do People Fall For Their Cousins?Well I'm just wondering to myself, what wakes us 'love our cousins'???? Not all of us even like our cousin obviously because there is group called -I hate my cousin- and -I was molested by my cousin- *Shudders*
Well, I don't really like talking to some of my cousins because they think they're better and all that **** , yeah you know.......
But I'm also one of these people who get along with their cousins (some) SO well that they can be best friends.
Some of us here say that it's like they're 'created for each other' and that their cousin is their 'soul mate' and stuff like that......now, I can't judge these people or say they're crazy because first of all, I'm not in love with my cousin so I don't know how they feel like and secondly, I'm not against the cousins falling in love think!!! Although, I wonder what I would do If one of my children fell in love with their cousin......Errrr can't imagine the situation.....
The thing that's a bit strange when cousins get married is that the bride's mother is the groom's auntie And mother in law. So basically members of the family would have 2 or more titles.
I think that the reason that people might be attracted to their cousins is because you share the same blood so they look a bit like you (1st cousins share about 12% of the same blood). and they remind you of yourself and since you like yourself, you like your cousin too.
(Okay this one was a really silly one)
Back to all seriousness,
Your grandparents raised both your parent and theirs. A lot of people raise their children very much like their parents raised them. So you have both experienced very similar things in your child hoods and thus have many of the same philosophies and interests. You are naturally inclined to be kind to each other by the nature of your family relationship, as well, and it could be very hard not to fall for someone of the opposite sex and similar age when they consistently offer up acts of generosity and kindness.
When in a relationship with your cousin, there aren't much secrets and you already know each other and have that deep connection and therefore saves you the time of getting to 'know' each other through that dating process....
Also, There are less chances of nasty surprises/habits.
Lastly, people are attracted to taboo things and 'apparently',It's exciting to break the rules. Why do you think the ban on alcohol failed so miserably in the U.S.?
