When a man and a woman get married and have children from another relationship, is it appropriate for the step children to date each other? I can't seem to get them to understand why that is inappropriate.
I don't know where you are located, but relationships between people who are siblings by adoption are illegal in some US states, but not in others. Outside the US it varies from country to country. You need to check your local laws. Of course if it is illegal where you live, you can tell them that. If it is legal, I don't know how you can convince them that it is "wrong", any more than with any other couple who are allowed legally to have a relationship. If they are living under your roof, you can tell them you won't allow it. If they are adults and not living under your roof, I don't see what you can do, other than convey your disapproval.
Let's be smart here, use our brains for a second...
You should start a new thread with the title reading:
step and biological children having a relationship together due to biological parent's/step parent's orders
Very reasonable, understandable, makes a whole lot of damn sense, more sense. Hell. Haven't you seen those movies.
According to what I know. Ethically, they can have relationship with each others because they are not related (same blood). Legally, I don't know. It depends on the laws of where you live. (p.s. I am learning on grammar.)
The ages need to be taken into consideration.
That should be "Of course."
Thanks for correcting my spelling Wilso.
I'm dealing with a bunch of idiots.
