• It seems to be incest only if there is some degree of consanguinity (shared blood). New Jersey throws in "affinity to the third degree" which is complicated but I think that only applies in this case of the adopted parent has sex with the adopted child. I don't think it applies to adopted siblings, though the age of consent issues still apply. There seem to be two reasons to prevent incest: 1) genetics and having children, and 2) abuse of familial intimacy. If I am correct above about adopted siblings, then this seems to be a genetic matter.
  • let me get this straight: you are adopted and you have fallen in love with someone from your adopted family? if so, it may not be blood incest, but it is moral incest, because you have been raised as part of that family, and a morally related to that person.
