Couple Discover They Are Cousins After 17-Year Marriage, Three Children
A couple, Celina and Joseph Quinones, from Colorado in the United State, have discovered they are cousins, after 17 years of marriage with three children.
Posting on TikTok under the handle #realestatemommas, Celina broke the news of how they found out they were more than just man and wife, Daily Mail reports on Wednesday.
She wrote, “ Married my husband in 2006. Not thinking anything of it, we had three kids. Come to find out we were related and cousins.”
She described the moment she discovered her husband was also her cousin as ‘devastating,’ but she claims the couple’s love is stronger than ever and she has ignored negative comments suggesting divorce.
She said, “This was three kids in that I found out we were related. I did my DNA test I think in 2016 and yeah it was devastating because I was like, ‘babe we’re related. Are we even supposed to be together? This is weird’. It really freaked me out.
“I wouldn’t change it for the world… Cousband and wife for life! There is a reason why good couples look alike. I am just over here raising awareness.”
