Dating your step brother
: D But I haven't seen my ex in many years, he and his dad are not close, to put it mildly. "step" indicates family member by parents who were married previously ...children from previous marriage become new spouses "step children" - NON-biological children step-brother/sister is a non-biological sibling .."siblings" due to parents remarriage"step children" are product of BLENDED families There are laws against marrying cousins due to biological reasons today however a step-cousin is not a biological cousinthere is nothing wrong from Gods Word, or morally wrong marrying a "step cousin" which is a term used to indicate they are now related due to remarriage of aunts/uncles with children ...a non-biological relative this is in reply to the person who said you could marry your step brother. A marriage is void if one party to the marriage is related to the other as:(1)an ancestor or descendant, by blood or adoption,(2)a brother or sister, of the whole or half blood or by adoption,(3)a parent's brother or sister, of the whole or half blood or by adoption,or(4)a son or daughter of a brother or sister, of the whole or half blood or by adoption.as a Christian it does matter if you are with your step cousin,no matter how far removed.
So to marry your step cousin is not really a good choice.Just wrong...there are so many other fish in the sea. If so then the odds are in favor to some because we live in such a perverse world that even the "saved" have their minds snared with an [Hot] iron. and there is not any laws or passages in the Bible that say anything about step cousins... Wow i read your comments about theres other fish in the sea go fishing else wear. Im married to my step cousin.(his aunt married my father when i was 14) i truely believe god puts you w/ your husband/wife. For if you marry near of kin you will have a high occurrence of producing down syndrome or monoloidial children, and souls which are biologically and organically defective abnomalies.I would go beyond what I think and understand that the only relationship that is acceptable is two persons that are unrelated either by marriage or blood. The fact that it is step means a second marriage... And since life is proven to be very difficult enough for normal healthy individuals, as the sparks fly upward, it is very unwise to bring statistically inept and physically and mentally cursed or impaired souls into this hard world for them to struggle and survive.Find some one if this is about your choice, from an unrelated family to you.make sure you are both first and foremost Christians. Step is a term for 'By Law' not Biological or near Blood step or two step is ok.
