I am a married man
In love with my married cousin
We used to hug and kiss as teenagers
Is this an inappropriate relationship?
Now we talk on WhatsApp and she says she misses me
I want to hold her again
Is it wrong to fancy a cousin?
Is it a taboo and called incest?
But I really want to be with her
Please tell me how to take the step.
Counsellor Mallika Pathak says: As much as I understand that we can’t filter our feelings
There is always the question of appropriateness and inappropriateness
Touching and hugging as teenagers may be due to infatuation and curiosity
The sexual impulse right now will only lead to more complications
Are you in an emotionally and physically satisfying relationship with your spouse?
I would recommend that you seek professional help so as to process the feelings
And cope in a healthier manner
