The assumption of the question is wrong. Marrying and having children together are obviously two different things. People get married and do not make babies together. People make babies together without getting married. It happens everyday, all over the world. MOST children born to close relatives are healthy. Anyone concerned about the risks can get genetic counseling. People shouldn't get married if: 1. They don't want to get married to ANYONE. 2. They havent found a person or people with whom they are fundamentally compatible. But if they WANT to get married and are right for each other, nobody else's hang-ups should be able to stop them.

Tiffiny Originally Answered: Do you have family members that treat you bad?
Oh yeah, I learned the hard way, you dont do business with family. She probably had good intentions, but there is so much baggage in families that it all blows up eventually. The only thing you can really do is either try to talk through the baggage, and hurry up in finding your own place. I moved in with my cousin after loosing my job. I was actually helping her out, because she was about to not have a place to stay, I moved, found a job, etc. But everything was a huge fight, from how we fixed repairs before we could move in, down to how i decorated my bathroom. When her place turned out to be in too bad of a shape to fix (it was a trailor), I took action and got us an apartment, which was the worst thing I could have done, apparently. I worked 3 jobs to pay my bills plus part of hers, again, how dare I. She moved her boyfriend in, and then I got sick. I told her I couldnt pay the part of her bills I was helping her out with because i was paying for doc apts, she got angry, lied to her bf about why I was paying the bills, claiming it was money I owed her, when she really owed me. Then, when I was finally diagnosed with leukemia, they kicked me out while I was in the hospital because I offered groceries I had just bought to my mom who had taken unpaid leave to come be with me. That was horrible thing only a liar and user would do, because I told them they could keep the food without paying me for it. The whole 1/4 or less of what my mom took out of 200$ in groceries was going to leave them starving. Then they tried to black mail me because I was trying to push them into giving me the money they owed me. NEVER again.

Tell her how you feel but I doubt it will help. She should not treat u like that, especially her own parents, it is disgusting behaviour! you should all move out as asap. Relying on someone is not a bad thing, that is what family is for. And yes I have some horrid family members.

Joe is correct. there are many genetic diseases which are recessive, that is to say, that in order to express the disease phenotype the person must inherit two copies of a mutant allele. When you mate with a random person in the population, chances are that this person would not have the same recessive mutant alleles as you, and your children would not develop any recessive diseases (of course, it all depends on the prevalence of such disease in the population, but chances are that it is less likely). When you mate with a relative, as you share genetic alleles, there is a higher chance that you both have a mutant allele for a disease and thus a greater risk that the offsprings have a recessive condition. Hope that helped.

inbreeding; remember that there are 2 copies of each gene, if one gene has a defect the other one can take over and perform normal functions. inbreeding increases the risk that both genes will have a defect.

You would have to have the blog (Wordpress) set up on your own hosting account ( no free hosting account is going to allow you to limit visitors, and their advertising revenue!) You can find out how to do that here: http://www.blogbriefing.com/good-hosting-company-wordpress/ Then, in Wordpress you can choose a number of options: 1) You can choose not to have your site be indexed i.e. 'noticed' by the search engines. In other words the chances of somebody coming across it 'by accident' are very slim. 2) You can make access only available to 'Subscribers' i.e. your family ( they'd each have their own user name and password to login to see the content) 3) You could set it up so that all/some family members have 'Author' rights - in other words they could post content to the site as well, subject to your Editorial approval. Or share the load and give another family member 'Editorial' rights. Each family member could have their own 'category' for posting e.g. 'Mum's News' , 'Uncle Jake's News' etc. 4) You could have some information be available to everybody on the web but password protect your 'family confidential' stuff. Wordpress is very, very cool!
