They just found out too. But they don't think its a big deal. They say its far enough back that they don't consider themselves related. But it kind of freaked me out. I told them I don't wanna hear or speak of it again.

I want to forget about it.. I am too ashamed to tell anyone, even my husband. But I have to live with it and accept it. What am I gonna do, kill myself?

Am I overreacting?

    Yes, you're over reacting.

    Everyones related some way or another.... There's no generic problems that far apart

    I think u r overreacting only bc they didn't know either. It would be different if they knew and proceeded anyways.

    Just keep it to yourself and move on. It's not like you can do anything to change it.

    3rd of 4th cousins share very little dna. yes they come from the same genetic tree but thats all. I think you're overreacting a little

    Legally they can get married. My grandparents were step siblings but not raised together.

     LMAO You are soooooo overreacting, it is not even funny. Chill pill, Mama. It is no big deal. Most of us whose families have been in one area for a long time have some relatives married to relatives. It happens! Hell, in 34 states, it is legal to marry your first cousin! lol

    Yes, you are overreacting. That's pretty distant. I bet that happens a lot more than we know.
