What's wrong with Poe marrying his cousin? They didn't share any parents.

Even if he had married his first cousin, there's nothing at all wrong with that, a cousin is a cousin and not a sister.

So what that he married her it was because iff he didnt virginia would have had to gone and live with a diffrent family member also they werent related so it wouldnt be tat gross!

He was 40 and she was almost 14 when they got married.And I know this is kinda sick but at that time marrying your cousin was normal.

You're all F-in douche bags, you don't know, Poe was 27, she was 13, she was his first cousin, but it was legal (except the age), and he's a fucking pedofile. You're all pieces of S!

Back in thoses days it was ok to marry your children off shortly after birth. So back then a 13 year old marring a 26 year old was like marring a person the same age as you. But I do agree it was pretty gross.
