I just found out my parents are 3rd or 4th cousins :/

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
They just found out too. But they don't think its a big deal. They say its far enough back that they don't consider themselves related. But it kind of freaked me out. I told them I don't wanna hear or speak of it again.

I want to forget about it.. I am too ashamed to tell anyone, even my husband. But I have to live with it and accept it. What am I gonna do, kill myself?

Am I overreacting?

You MAY be overreacting just a tad

Almost 30 years. They are from a small country in Europe but met here. and my mom was talking to her father in law on their recent trip there, about their ancestors and they traced it back and figured it out.

How long have they been together and how did they just find out?

They just found out, they are married, love each other, and had you and your siblings. You're all fine. Leave it be and move on! Making them feel ashamed over something they had no idea about is really rude of you.

Oh wow that's crazy. Yes I do think you're over reacting. I understand you're in shock and confused but its not like they grew up with each other kwim?

How did they meet and how did no one know to tell them? Like their parents.

My husband's parents were 4th cousins.  No biggie.
