Have you ever imagined that these people could be related?
It’s safe for us to assume that most of us would not want to marry anyone we were related to. This is especially true if you think about your cousins, with whom most of us spent summers playing back at our grandparents’ houses. It is a bit weird to do so, but back in the day, they had no qualms about marrying blood-related people in their families.
And while you might be tempted to think about the royals and even go back to the 18th and 19th centuries, there are plenty of marriages of this sort that are happening in modern times as well. This is despite the fact that we know the kind of health problems that can occur if you have children with people that are too closely related to you!
Even if a lot of us would like to think it doesn’t happen in our country or that it is only in certain distant communities, there are numerous famous people who have married each other! And some of them are thought to be some of the most famous love stories in recent centuries because they found love when it was less common to hear about such wonderful marriages.
While some of them did it unknowingly, others have gone to great lengths to lie about the fact that they are related by blood or through their spouse and tried to downplay the union. Here we have gathered some of the most famous related couples, and you would not believe who is on this list!
Let us know if you know about them or if any surprise you!
