So she is no longer allowed to smoke on our balcony. I also asked that she brush her tenth and change a top after smoking before handling the baby. She was asked to get a whooping cough vaccine.

    Nothing crazy, but life always revolves around her smoking and her in general!

    Through my work I saw an instance of cousins marrying and having kids in the last 12 months. They had to have a DNA (?) test to ensure the kids they would have would not have any 'inbreeding' (please tell me there is a better word for this - I feel terrible writing it) issues.

    Of all the people in the world and you end up with your cousin.

    I googled and couldn't come up with another word... but maybe "inimate familial relations"?

    Well, this got way off topic for a MIL thread, lol!

    Yeah it's...odd. But only as a moral concept. It was commonplace for centuries.

    *shrug*

    ETA: also, apparently the risk of genetic disorders is 6%, compared with 3% for those who are not closely related. It's double the risk, but still not huge.

    It's not really a close family bond thing I guess.

    I mean I have over 40 first cousins, and only know 25 of them... things happen.

    Lol EXTREMELY delusional... good luck to her trying to arrange it cos legally in this country its not aloud to happen... of course DP naturally put up his defences because mother can do no wrong... i just pulled the roll reversal out and he did shut up very quickly... as hard as it is bot to let his reaction get to me i just cant be bothered with holding onto it... it really can make you very bitter... so with some wonderful advice from my mother and with the famous words from elsa on frozen i let it goooooo lol
