Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: first cousins married together for us is consider incest MLID

It is incest (inbred) they are blood related and the older people say it causes handicap and mental issues. I can't imagine marrying one of my cousins. I have some that are more like my brothers than my cousin. It makes me sick too. My ex told me he didn't see anything wrong with it when we discussed it one day. He said why are westerners so against it. I told him it's incest. It's not just a certain race who considers it incest. I'm not sure of other races who marry like this other than Arabs unless it's another country in Africa. Maybe Nadia will know. We don't do this in the United States. There have been cases of it but of course it's not accepted. I've said it plenty of times and I'll say it again. Most of them are crazy as hell and this could be one reason why. You're right maybe this was one of MLID's ex husband's problems.
