Siblings that are possibly "involved" with each other!

So my wife has this friend that she's known for about 25 years who is a nice girl but a bit odd at times, and at age 38 this girl has never been married and has never really dated and doesn't seem interested in that either. She does however live with her younger brother who's 35, and they have been "roomates" now for about 10 years after moving out of their parents house at the same time together. And they both seem verrrrry close but in an odd sort of way, and whenever she stops by to visit my wife she always goes on and on about her brother with this bright eyed look on her face. The two of them are always going out to movies, dinners, and taking vacations together to romantic spots like they were a couple. I have suggested that maybe she should start to distance herself from her friend, because the thought of incest really creeps both of us out and is totally gross!

Does this sound like these two are "involved" and if so would it creep you out as well?

All I have to say is YES it is creepy.

And we're actually friends with a gay couple that we've known a few years and have double dated a few times, buuuut we have to draw the line with sibling incest couples if that is indeed what they've become.

Re: Siblings that are possibly "involved" with each other!

My wife has known this sister and brother and their family since about 7th grade, so it's 10 times harder for my wife to be around them now and to see her friend acting a little "gaga" about her own brother. She said it makes her wanna vomit and cry every time she sees them or thinks about it, so that's why I am getting her to simply cut all ties.

What does the gay couple have to do with a possibly incestuous relationship?

Comparing a consensual homosexual relationship between two adults and incest is odd and offensive to me.

Well if it's incest they are old enough to know what they are doing. I'd leave them alone, of they are not hurting anyone why butt in.

It's a great parallel. Many people find gay sex revolting, but should butt out of other people's personal business.

Why?

I don't get it? I don't want to have sex with a sibling, nor do I with a man. But that's my own personal sexual desires. If they aren't hurting anybody, why do you care?

I think that what the guy is trying to say is that they are open minded people using the gay couple as an example but grossed out with the brother sister thing.

By the way. What state do you live in?

Why ask for the state? So they can report it if it's illigal?

Just because they live together as siblings does not make it incestuous relationship. Besides living together , what make you think that they are doing what you think they are doing? Maybe they do not want to be married but decided to live together to make things cheap.

Exactly - we are open minded, and the point was that we are friends with people who aren't the typical or traditional style of couples, but we can see someone who is gay side of things and are comfortable with it I guess. But again having sex or being involved with a sibling is just a bit too far out there for us, and you would have to actually see these people in person to know exactly what we are observing that makes it uncomfortable to be around them any longer.

Sounds like an episode of Jerry Springer or Steve Wilkos.

I love my older brothers and I think they're both super handsome we are close but I would be taking romantic vacations with them.

I can't see it is "wrong" if they aren't hurting each other.

Who cares what people do that are "gross." Consenting adults do all sorts of things that are "gross" and again, as long as they are two consenting people, who cares?
