Unhealthy relationships, narrow gene pool | Comment 25 of 52 |

Here's the family tree -

Grandparents are Jon & Diane, and Lorraine & John.

Jon & Diane have 3 children, Juan, Suzi and Ricardo. Juan has 4 children. Suzi has 3 children.

Lorraine & John have 2 children, Lorna-jane and Frasier, who are twins.

Lorna-jane is married to her cousin Juan (4 children).

Frasier is married to his cousin Suzi (3 children). Ricardo is not married and has no children.

I don't like the way the gene pool is narrowing here - Diane and her brother John share their 7 grandchildren because four of their 5 kids have intermarried. Not healthy!

There are 16 people altogether.
