True Love

I married my first cousin once removed. I fell deeply in love with him when I was 12 years old and he was 16.  We had a relationship and  a child out of wedlock in 1981. We both married other people, then divorced and rekindled our relationship over a decade later. We were married in 1990. We now have 2 beautiful completely healthy children and 3 wonderful grandchildren.  I love him now more than ever. I never think about him being my cousin until some horrible remark is made by friends or family members. He is my husband, we have a wonderful relationship and are best friends also. It really hurts when people close to us say something degrading about our relationship. I have never felt like I was doing anything wrong.  We have watched many of our friends go through separation and divorce. I have no doubt that we will be separated only by death. We have been married for almost 19 years and have never been unfaithful to one another. I still get butterflies when he walks into the room. I dont think it would be possible to have a more loving relationship. Cousins are cousins, but soulmates are rare and precious and he is mine.
