It breaks my heart to know that I have not-so-distant cousins I would have loved to have known better. Instead they are all very loose acquaintances and at age 32 it seems too late to try and form any sort of real relationship with them, not to mention awkward.
I hope my kids don’t have to experience that. I’m not doing a very good job letting my kids get to know some of their cousins that are 2nd or 3rd cousins. Is it normal to have relationships with 2nd or 3rd cousins?
