Two People Want to Get Married, What's the Problem?
Advertisements [?]
I got blasted for defending "brother-sister" love. One person said "That's INCEST"! Yes, it's a social taboo, and some people get sick/disgusted just thinking about it. But it's also two consenting adults. Why should they be kept from marrying?

Is there any good reason? Wouldn't it be violating their civil rights to keep them from marrying?

Or is the only reason for preventing this, especially if they aren't planning to have children, that people think it's disgusting?
