The fact that each of them is blood related to this child alone should make them not want to date one another. A couple of years later, my dads sister married my mums uncle. My mom always wished they would get together and get married. Not because anyone thought it was gross, they just didn't click. Well her older brother dated and was engaged to her husbands mom. Her daughter and his son met at the wedding, clicked, and got married.
This makes Pam both my mums aunty and her sister in law. Unless there is a blood tie, or if they grew up as family (eg adopted etc), I see nothing wrong with it. My grandma had a daughter with her husband, my grandpa had a son with his wife. If they had gotten married my aunts husband would have been his own uncle/nephew :) his mom would have also been his sister-in-law! They had a son together who can technically claim he has an uncle-dad and an aunt-mom.
Although I'm a fan of courtship so that is another matter.
I have two couples in my extended family that are related through us.
I don't know about the child issue, but I have heard of twin's from one family getting married to twins from another family and other situations like that.
As long as there is no blood relation between dating couples, I wouldn't consider it wrong.
The general principle of this section is given in verse 6: Do not have sexual relations (the Heb. lit., “to uncover the nakedness of”) with any close relative other than your spouse.
The primary thrust of the passage is to forbid illicit marriages, as the prohibition against adultery was assumed (cf.
Well if you find that gross then you'll really get a kick out of this. The marriage did not last, unfortunately so only the child has the complicated relation now.
Random thought but this reminds me of the girl on the first teen mom that gave her baby up for adoption....
It was frown upon by older generation, but worked out fine. Its not first come first serve basis, they just met later than the original couple.
