Dating third cousin
I hadn't her in years, and now I see her for the first time as fully developed and found her very attractive.
We were having cocktails at the bar together, and we had a pretty decent connection. I would never do something with a first cousin, but I feel like third cousin could be appropriate. That lady would know how to sling a store coupon around.So I know it's obviously legal to marry your second or third cousin, but is it considered wrong or strange if they're your third cousin?Our families were at the country club for Christmas Eve, amongst obviously many others, and I had no idea I had a third cousin that was so attractive.According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, laws regarding cousin marriage in the United States mostly apply to marriage between first cousins, rendering marriage to a third cousin legal.Only 25 states prohibit first cousin marriage under any circumstances.Stan's brother Arthur married Mary's sister Delinda; they had Sam.
Mary & Delinda's other sister, Gina, had a child named Tom.
I asked my grandmother over dinner last night about her thoughts on marrying a third cousin, and she said 4th would be fine, but on the fence about someone marrying a third cousin.
I'm trying to figure out what's the most tactful thing...maybe I bump into her in a social setting, and pretend like I don't remember her or don't remember how we have met?

She would be great wife material, but I don't know what our families would think. She's finishing up college, and we're only 4 years apart.
