Has a soap ever done that before? ETA - this is about blood related pairings.

And as long as Brady is taking John's women, I'm going to put in my weekly request for Krady.
Well, Jonathan & Tammy on Guiding Light were 1/2 1st cousins. Larry & Karen Wolek on OLTL were cousins (Karen Wolek's maiden & married names were both Wolek). Jimmy Lee Holt & Celia Quartermaine on GH were a hot couple in the 80s and they were cousins. I'm sure I'm missing a ton more somewhere. This "cousins being in love is icky" thing is really a fairly recent attitude from the last couple of decades, I think.

Really, Brady & Theresa are so damn far apart in relation that it really wouldn't be a problem. Besides, I think they're only related because of Santeen & I still refuse to acknowledge that hotmess of a story, so I'm good to go. Let's face it, when it comes down to it, a whole lot of us are probably blood related if we go far enough back.
They're not that far back though, 2nd cousins. Legal in every state though I believe, and really it is distant enough genetically to keep most bad mutations at a minimum.

To me, beyond 3rd cousins (4th+) is acceptable. At 30 years per generation, you're probably looking at (if you're 30) sharing a family member who was born about 1830. But 2nd is still a bit too close.

However if Therady gets rid of John's Santeen origin I would be over the moon with joy!!

Are these people who knew they were cousins?

I mean, I can think of some couples who did not know they were related (or one did and didn't tell the other one) but I think that's it. Granted my history of soaps knowledge is not as deep.

Oh, yeah. Each of those 3, at least, knew they were cousins. Hell, Karen Wolek was 1st introduced on the show as a Wolek cousin with her sister Jenny. Celia was a Quartermaine cousin & Jimmy Lee wsa revealed to be Edward Quartermaine's son. They still got together. Tammy's mother & Jonathan's mother were 1/2 sisters.

If Brady can almost marry a woman who used to babysit him,change his diaper,etc,who knows what he'll do.
Well, Bristen aren't related, so I was fine with them.

I can't handle "Brincest". Brady + Incest.....or "Brousins" Brady + Cousins.
John is Kritter's uncle,that does make them related,I know she is adopted,but adoptee's are family too.She may not be a blood Dimera,but somehow she became the most demented Dimera.

I'm not sure Kristen or Peter were ever legally adopted. If I remember correctly, when they first came on, Stefano was merely referred to as their legal guardian or surrogate father. Hence Kristen & Tony marrying (even though they were siblings since Tony had been rewritten to be Stefano's bio-son).

Brady might be an idiot right now but I am always ALWAYS here for some Eric Martsolf. And his arms. I am here for them, too.

The bolded expresses my feelings exactly about that stupid story and Brady and Jeannie Theresa. And having John go back to being a plain ol' Alamain totally works for me.

How about Chloe return. I know for a fact he isn't related to her. LOL. Plus, the actors have chemistry. And there is unfinished business from Vienna.

I would LOVE a Broe reunion! And it would make the most sense, but of course these writers have no sense whatsoever. :shrug: I love Eric, he is so funny and so nice, but I just can't anymore with dumb Brady who falls in love with every woman he meets and declares her the love of his life. :facepalm:

I think Brady is in love with the idea of love rather than an actual person.

They're not related by blood, but they are related.
I was just wondering about this the other day not so much the bristen part but the stefano/kristen/peter "adoption."

Do we know if Stefano ever officially adopted Peter and Kristen? Because that would make the tony/andre x Kristen marriage kinda grosser. I know that Kristen suddenly decided to use the DiMera name when she came back to town, but the question as to whether or not she and peter are officially counted as Stefano's children is still on my mind.

It looks like Brady even doesn't "know" he is related to Theresa because he reffered to Theresa as "Sami's cousin" in an episode.

Me too! I'd love for a Broe reunion so much!!! I really wish Days would bring Nadia back and pair Brady back with Chloe. That is the only pairing that really worked for me regarding Brady.

IIRC, they presented it more like he'd taken the Blake kids in in an unofficial arrangement. Kristen would call Stefano her father, but she also called him 'Stefan' and when Stefano disowned her, he was all like "you were like a daughter to me."

Although it still makes Kristen/Tony weird in my eyes, especially since Kristen is more of a Dimera than any of Stefano's other kids.

Eric seems so personable and fun. I like him a lot. I have been banging my head against the wall over Brady's stupidity lately but I really do hope that everything that's happened changes his life and some of the unhealthy patterns of behavior he's gotten caught up in. I care about Brady and I think that deep down inside he's a good person, but he hasn't been a good person lately at all. He's been blind and careless and completely insensitive to the people who actually care about him. I hope his relationships with John and Marlena can heal. I hope his friendship with Nicole can ultimately be repaired too. But he has to learn and grow. Giving Kristen a second chance was just too much. Beyond the pale.

And I should say that as a Nicole loyalist, and given Brady's history with Nicole, the irony of my last statement above is not lost on me...but for me Nicole is a good person at heart, albeit a broken one who is sometimes extremely, criminally selfish...Kristen, however, is somewhere in between completely bonkers and straight up evil.

$10 says it was Alice. Thus finally making John Black directly related (or believed to be related) to all of the major past/present Salem families.
