A Canadian man and his half-sister have been struggling with legal and social prejudice against consanguinamory. They were brought together through Genetic Sexual Attraction, but the external pressure attacking their love has been a heavy burden.
The man wanted me to share what his lover, his biological half-sister, wrote to him...
How can two people marry
Who are not in love
But two people in love
It is cruelty that anyone would be forced to live a lie just because of love, and that they are denied the freedom to marry.
As he wrote...
I do love her like I have never loved any one else. I am mad at society for judging us and not allowing us to live as we want to. The lies the secrets causes even more pain.
I cannot ask friends or family (what I have left) for help as they do not understand.
My heart longs for her and she says the same back but she cannot let go of what others say. And that is getting between us.
When we are together nothing else matters.
This cruelty needs to be ended. We need full marriage equality sooner rather than later, so that an adult is free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage with any consenting adults.
