Prohibited Degrees of Marriage - Redneck Heaven


In an interesting, yet necessary follow-up to my last post regarding the legal ins-and-outs of preparing for marriage, this little addendum to the appendix goes a little further, somewhat disturbingly...however, we must assume that it needfs to be pointed out, it's just a shame such rules and regulations don't appear to exist in some parts of the world.

Without further adieu, Schedule 2;

1) A person may not marry the person's -

a) grandparent (and why would you want to?)

b) parent (uh, duh!)

c) child (really, we need to point this out?)

d) grandchild

e) sibling

f) parent's sibling - your aunts and your uncles

g) sibling's child

h) grandparent's spouse or civil union partner

i) parent's spouse or civil union partner

j) spouse's or civil union partner's parent

k) spouse's or civil union partner's grandparent

l) spouse's or civil union partner's child

m) child's spouse or civil union partner

n) grandchild's spouse or civil union partner

o) spouse's or civil union partner's grandchild

2) The prohibited degrees of marriage apply whether the relationships described are by the whole blood or by the half blood

3) In this schedule, spouse and civil union partner includes a former spouse or civil union partner, whether alive or deceased, and whether the marriage or civil union was terminated by death, dissolution, or otherwise.

So there.

PS...for the record, you can't marry an animal either.
