re: Can someone please give me valid reasons why one cannot marry within family?

The reason why marriage within family is frowned upon has nothing to do with genetic mutations or birth defects. It's a causal misconception.

Allow an illustration.

If Bill is a banker with an IQ of 120 and his sister is a nurse with an IQ of 120 they would not have sex with each other because they are smart and not attracted to each other.

If Bill is a slobbering moron with an IQ of 60 and his sister is an idiot with an IQ of 70 then they have sex and produce a mentally retarded baby.

Thus, the stigma that goes back 100s of years. It has nothing to do with inbreeding. It's the happenstance of low IQ family members having sex.

There is no compelling reason for the govt to outlaw marrying within the family. NONE

genetic diversity.

Inbreeding is a very real threat to the long-term viability of the offspring. Any genetic problem (poor eyesight, propensity for heart disease, skeletal problems, ect) are all intensified through inbreeding. There is also a greater chance of the offspring coming out mentally deficient.

You're talking about fricking. This thread is about marriage.

Also, IQ is not purely genetic and often is not passed down. It may prove to be more a product of environment and random chance than anything else.

For a single generation, inbreeding may do little to no harm, possibly even good. But repeated inbreeding creates massive problems.

Anything more distant than first cousin is probably ok as long as there is no "double relation".

It's difficult to believe there are some here arguing for instances of inbreeding. Learn something every day.

Nope. People are talking about marriage. Nobody is encouraging others to sleep with their siblings or children.

Yes, it is. The differences are mom having sex with lots of men with different IQs.
The controlling factor is twins. That's TBC. Read it. Great book.
Altering IQ levels are plus or minus 5 unless mom goes on a serious drinking binge during pregnancy.

What is the social harm if siblings or cousins want to marry?, besides birth defects of course. What is the political reasoning behind banning intrafamily marriage?



Ok so who in your family are you banging? Might as well tell us.
