  • Welcome to Arkansas !
  • I say if they are in love with each other, just go for it.. what's the problem?
  • it feels weird.
  • What happens in the family stays in the family.
  • It's legal... They aren't blood relatives. So I could care less. The problem will come of there are problems in their marriage. Family members will take sides, and this can be extremely detrimental to the family in general.
  • Everyone has that special someone although I personally could never imagine ending up in that relationship step or not your already related so it's kinda (all I got here is the following word) icky
  • It depends on if they are blood related or not. If it's kids from 2 previous marriages or if one of the kids are adopted, I think its alright. But, if they have one of the same parents I think it's a little weird.
  • Well, If we as a society are going to redefine marriage, why not include this as equal, especially if a step brother marries his step brother..............Prop 8 anyone....
  • I think that as long as they are not biological there is nothing wrong with it. Here in America we have a lot BIGGER problems when it comes to the sanctity of marriage than step sibblings.
  • Hmmm, since I made out with my step-sister when I was 14 (step cousin too for that matter), I'd better not condemn this. If they became part of the same family when they were young and grew up together in the same home, it might be a little be creepy. On the other hand, if the parents didn't meet or re-marry until the kids were in their twenties, it seems alright. Also, my step-siblings lived with their mother in a different state and I only saw them two or three times in my life. So, if i met her now, I wouldn't even recognise her, and i guess that could happen and it would be alright. So, I think it comes down to how long they have been steplings and how close they were during that time. The younger and closer, the creepier; the older and less close the oker.
  • yukk i dont like it sisiter is sister how could anybody . . ..
  • as long as they are not blood related..
  • They probably know one another better than 99 percent of the couples getting married so they should have a pretty good idea of whether or not they can live life with this person. I think it's not a bad idea if they love one another.
  • I think they will save money at the wedding....smaller guest list....that they will like their in-laws...and they don't have to worry about dividing up holidays....all in all it works out great.....lol...
  • It depends on the situation. Personally, it gives me the creeps, but that has a lot to do with the taboo of having sex with someone who is family (I know it's a blood relative thing, but it's hard to differentiate at times). If they are confortable with it and there are no laws prohibiting it, then I see no reason why my opinion should matter in the least. But, I do find it a bit creepy.
  • the Clampetts from Beverly hillbillies
  • whatever, not my place to judge
  • never been in that situation. It seems to happen all over the world. If they are happy then who am I to judge them?
  • I kissed my stepsister when I was younger... It's actually fairly common. I mean, my dad got remarried when I was 13. That's when the hormones are really flarin! My stepsister was 14. We hooked up once. I mean, if you really think about it, we had absolutely no relation to eachother other than my dad and her mom getting hitched. That doesn't really make us "brother and sister." And she was cute and she moved into my house. Right away we're spending time together... What do you really expect to happen? lol.
  • Kind of odd because in they way they ARE family, but they're Not related by blood, so I could care less about it. I still wouldn't do it.
  • I Married my Stepsister,,,My Dad was married to her mom for 33 years;) Where divorced now and that puts a damper on seeing the step family.
  • It's weird. I regard my step siblings as family.
  • What's the big deal? There is no blood relation there and there kids will turn out fine.
  • I happy for anyone who finds love. There is no blood, so there is no reason to question it.
  • I'm assuming you mean related by marriage ONLY. It does make sense in a way. Your parent was attracted to their parent and theirs to yours. You are likely similar to your parent and they to theirs. So the attraction could be seen as somewhat logical. I would find it a bit unusual but I wouldn't freak about it. P.s. I use *your* only because it is too confusing to label it "someone".
  • Out of 6.5 Bil. people on the face of the earth you'd think they could find someone else. Now sleeping with them would be another matter?
  • I think 'Good Luck' to them. I hope they will be very happy.:)
  • That means they are only related by marriage, not blood? If so, what difference would it make? I'd just be happy for them. :)
  • as long as you guys r related by marriage not blood because half sisters or half brothers have one of the same parent like the same real dad or same real mom but as long as you only know each other because of your parents marriage i say go for it unless your step dad or step mom is having children with your real mom or real dad
  • ( shrug ) No skin off MY nose! : D
  • I don't see any harm in it because that is no blood relationship; however, if they grew up together in the same home, there might be a morral issue. Something to ponder---if it were the other way around where the parents married after the children were married, what would be the difference? Would there be anything wrong with the husband's father marrying his wife's mother?
  • As long as they didnt grow up as brother and sister Its alright. Even though they arent blood related that would still seem inappropriate.
  • It depends on their age and history. It's not uncommon for people to remarry when their kids are in college or are adults. Since the siblings statistically me be predisposed to have similar social, cultural and economic backgrounds, it would not be surprising if their grown children also had similar values and interests. Their children might then be more likely to be attracted to each other in a statistical sense than to ramdomly chosen peers. There is no biological, legal, or sociological reason to not get married, and if they are adults or near adults with no previous history together, so why not? If they spent part of their childhood or adolescence living together, it is much harder to imagine. Although it would be legal, it would feel like incest to me.
  • my ex brother in law married his fathers stepdaughter which made it his stepsister and then they divorced and it has made family get togethers very very weird so I would advise against it. His stepmother was also his mother in law. But hey it's legal, just stupid if you ask me.
