I am talking, or course, about slavery.
It was an "old-school" value that people in Colonial America considered a necessity. It helped the Southern Colonies make their money and led the South to prosperity. Later, slaves grew the goods that were sold to fund our rebellion against Britain. Nobody in Colonial America thought it was wrong. It was an "old-school" value that helped maintain civilization. To them, free blacks were dangerous.
As you can see, "old-school" values are not always what's right. Allowing siblings to marry wouldn't affect you and I in anyway, nor would it affect anyone who doesn't love their sibling in that way. America would wake up the next morning, folks would go to work, and the world would spin on as usual, except for the few people who became a little happier by us allowing them to love one another.
The problem with passing your marriage law is it would lead to inbreeding. You can always argue "Well just because we want to marry doesn't mean we would reproduce." It might be true for you, but you can not open up Pandora's box. You can't say YES its ok to marry but NO its not ok to reproduce. The law we have now tells you we do not condone the activity.
We all know that children have a higher chance disabilities and bones problems, but I believe you already agreed to that so I won't beat a dead drum. The point I wanted to make is an interesting one. I think it is NOT FAIR to the child to grow up in the household. The studies of having household family issues with children is on the rise and this would just add to it. It's hard enough to grow up in today's crazy world with a normal life, now your asking him to call his uncle DAD.
The last statement might be a little dramatic, but that's the box your looking to open.
