compliant to Bunmi Sofola of vanguard and we decided to share. Do you
think its OK to date, here i mean make love and then marry your step
brother even though you guys are not related? What do you
think about the situation? Then read Bunmi’s shrewd advice;

Dear
Bunmi,
My
mother re-married over six years ago and we moved into my step-father’s house.
He has three children and I’ve always found his eldest child good-looking. He
is in the university and I’m at the nursing school. I’m 23 and he’s two years
older.
About five months ago, we finally agree to having mutual feelings of love and
we kissed a lot. We recently took things a step further by making love. I love
him so much and he feels the same.
Our
parents don’t know what is going on. He says we have nothing to fear as we are
not related by blood, that legally, there’s nothing stopping us from getting
married.
Is he right?

Dear
Patricia,
Your step-brother is technically right. What you are both doing isn’t illegal
because you and him are not actually blood relatives.
If you were close blood relatives, it would definitely be against the law.
Having
clarified this, you need to be extremely careful. The fact that you find
yourselves under the same roof could be responsible for such a closeness,
rather than genuine compatibility between the two of you.
I
would take things slowly if I were you. Ethnically, the society frowns at such
a union between children who are legally related.
Put bluntly, sleeping with your mother’s husband’s son sucks! And if things
eventually go wrong between you, going back to the brother/sister relationship
you had before may be very tricky and uncomfortable.
