Question: I just re united with a distant cousin. Meaning, same grandmother but different grandfather (Dads were half brothers). Each of our parents have passed away, unfortunately. We have had a crush on each other since we were teens. It is not illegal to marry a cousin but people don’t approve of it and my children are very upset. We have a lot of fun together, he is a good man. He now wants to be with me and to be only with me, get married, etc. I am 61 and so sick of the dating scene, and I like him a lot. I want him to slow down as far as how quickly we get married and he understands. We live apart and cannot be together for at least a year, when he retires. This relationship is fun but the fact that he loves me and wants to marry me right after we reunited frightens me. He has been married three times but wants this to be the last time.
I think you’re not in love with him and only want to be with him because you’re sick of dating. That’s not a reason to get married.
