My daughter is planning on getting married very soon. However, I found out last week upon doing research on our family tree that my daughter’s fiancé is her fifth cousin.
I initially didn’t know how to break this news to her, but I finally did several days ago. My daughter apparently thought that this is perfectly fine, and that she’s still going to marry him anyway.
I told her that I don’t approve of this marriage, and that even though I initially agreed to pay for this wedding, I will not be paying for it if she decides to go through with it. We got into a huge fight, which ended with her telling me that she’s cutting me out of her life.
I honestly don’t know what to do. I just don’t want my daughter to marry her friggin cousin.
