Homework Help: Christianity

Posted by clay on Monday, December 21, 2009 at 8:55pm.

Okay so during and after the time of Jesus, it was okay for people to marry their relatives. People married their half sister or brother. Even in the 1500s royal families still married their relatives in England. So then how did the the law of not being able to marry close family members come about? Is it something that people eventually saw as wrong and decided to stop? Was it because of genetic diseases? This could also deal with sociology. Is there just a huge population that now more countries are not allowing marriage between relatives?
