Third cousin once removed dating
My boyfriend and I have been together for 2 and a half years. You know they are related somehow, enough to nod hello on the street, but far enough down the line that you don't have to claim them in case they are arrested or some other scandal occurs. It's like a step between facebook friends and actual friends.
A relative of mine passed away this week and my boyfriend's mom noticed her grandma and my great grandma have the same maiden name. Edit: Here we have Christian and Kermit demonstrating for us.
I'm going to extend it to "nodding friends." Those people you know enough to nod to or say hey to, but aren't really friends with.
So, if you share great-great-grandparents, that would make you third cousins?
So I recently just met my first cousin twice removed and i find him very nice, funny attractive, and just my type. So a first cousin twice removed would be a first cousin of one of your grandparents.
Levels of removal are for separation in generations if I remember correctly from when I took genetics.
For example, your mother's first cousin is your first cousin, once removed.
You don't share DNA with a third cousin, so genetically speaking, it's safe. Honestly great great grandparents would mean there are three generations, which means it wouldn't be illegal.
In fact some states allow you to marry your first cousin.
Second Cousin: Your second cousins are the people in your family who have the same great-grandparents as you., but not the same grandparents.
Third, Fourth, and Fifth Cousins: Your third cousins have the same great-great-grandparents, fourth cousins have the same great-great-great-grandparents, and so on.
