    Yes, you can marry your niece!

    Was doing some work related research and found this is very gross & very sickly - yes you can legally marry your niece, or nephew or cousin ..... SICK SICK SICK!



    Getting Married

    Marriage to a relative



    The Marriage Act prohibits people marrying:
    • an ancestor or descendant; or
    • their brother or sister (whether whole blood or half-blood siblings)
    These restrictions also apply to adoptive relationships even if these have been annulled, cancelled, discharged or cease to be effective for any reason (for example, a subsequent adoption order being made).

    This means, for example, that a person cannot marry their parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, brother or sister. However, (depending of course on the gender of the party) a person may marry their aunt or uncle, niece or nephew or ‘first’ cousin.

    Moderators: I would like this post removed as it is irrelevant to flying and offensive.

    We have a forum member making negative comments and expressing his/her view on people who have complied with Australian law.

    Wherever the law chose to draw the line there would be arguments one way or the other.
    Something big is about to happen.

    The intellectual argument is interesting. Why bother with the Marriage Act when you can establish a relationship under the Property Relationships Act if you are a NSW citizen. I, like many believed that marrying one's niece went against the provisions of the Marriage Act but apparently not so! The Anglican Church gives a good guide to prohibited relationships but I can't remember if uncle/niece is on the list. These days de facto relationships are as if marriages until the relationship breaks down and parties have to undergo expensive common law action to divvy up the spoils.

    My ego doesn't need stroking that badly.

    Re: Yes, you can marry your niece!

    I fail to see what any of this has to do with travel, I second the motion to delete the thread!

    TG
    Please note - I am currently not accepting any new clients.
    I will always endeavor to make myself available to assist those on AFF who I have met in person; for those who I haven't I will be more than happy to provide a referral to another quality travel advisor if needed.

    Hmm, since when has anything in Playground necessarily had to do anything with Travel?

    Please note that there is a "Report Post" facility on AFF. Click on the little red triangle with the "!" and an email is sent to the mods and Admin.

    You may not agree with the OP's views, but this was posted in the Playground forum which is specifically reserved for posting about off-topic things that are not relating to frequent flyer programs or other travel-related topics. I don't see that the post is in breach of the AFF posting guidelines. However, we will be watching and will close the thread if it degenerates into a slanging match or involves any personal attacks against any AFF members. Such action may also include a cooling-off period for transgressors.

    I suggest that if you don't like the discussion that you ignore the thread or even the entire Playground forum. If you find a post offensive, please report using the Report Post facility and your view will be considered.

    Does that mean we can abuse non AFF members and not risk such cooling off periods?
