Taboo Couples

So, my class is going over taboo relationships. Most are fairly straightforward, but I was curious what “the internet” thinks about two in particular relating to consenting adults:

1.) Relationships with large age gaps; ones that violate the (x/2)+7 rule. A 30 year old and a 21 year old, for instance.
2.) Relationships between first cousins.

For #1, as long as both parties are totally happy, I don’t see why anyone else should give a shit. #2 on the other hand, you can certainly say that their children will be… well… I… um… eh…

Different religious extremists or an extreme atheist with any religious extremist always causes trouble.

1.) Que sera, sera. If you’ve found true love, you’ve found true love. There are, of course exceotions to this rule, to an extent IMO, as far as pedophilic relationships go, but truly- love can happen between people regardless of age differences, can it not?

2.) Again… Que sera, sera. If you’ve found true love, you’ve found true love. In some countries outside of the US, marriage between cousins is legal, and consanguinity is actually somewhat prevalent. Much like the first question, I can’t really say I’m 100% on board with the idea (mostly due to horror stories of inbreeding), but if it’s true love, then it’s true love.

It’s just kinda redneckish true love.

Jedi and Normal People. Love eventually sends people into inner turmoil and throws off their balance in the force, turning the Jedi to the dark side and eventually killing the lover.

That and any Yaoi Pairing that isn’t legit. Take the characters real emotions towards another character into account first before Shipping you stupid fangirls!

Because I’m pretty sure necrophilia is illegal.

I’m all for true love no matter the race, culture, and age differences (with some exceptions with age differences, of course)

But this one has always been gross to me.

Ok, with (1) Clear instances where it would be a problem would be the level of trust. So a 16 year old is likely to place a lot of (possibly misguided) trust in a 50 year old partner. It think that’s where a lot of the “dirty old man”/“cradle snatching” comes from. It’s not wrong to be attracted, but the relationship does raise issues.

With (2) I have no problem morally. The idea that two cousins having a baby with a medical condition being because they are cousins is ignoring the point. They are two people with particular genetic material. Just as cousins with a family history of thalassemia could have a kid with it, there’s a chance any couple of Mediterranean background runs a risk, too. It’s not like God/Cthulhu is punishing someone for crossing the line we have created.

In both cases, the problem is reproduction. An older mother or father may cause pregnancy complications or affect the development of the child. Shared genetic factors may do the same for a blood-related couple. So I guess you trust people to know what’s right for them and to consult when they need guidance in these areas.

Just representin’ the inbred folk here.

About the large age gap:
You don’t take your 6 year old brother with your 15 year old friends, because he’s a child and your friends are not interested in what he says. But if you’re 30 and have a 21 friend, there is no big difference, because they’re both adults.
The same goes with relationships. It’s not the same to see a 18 year old guy with a 10 year girl than a 35 year man and a 27 year woman.

About cousin relationships… I agree, but their children might suffer the consequences.

All relationships between the feeble minded or people with genetic disorders are taboo.
