Marriage should be prohibited

Marriage should be prohibited

English Law

The Act of 1835 states – All marriages… between persons within the prohibited degree of consanguinity (blood relatives) and affinity shall be absolutely null and void to all intent and purposes.

German Law

Marriages are void between descendants and ascendants; relatives by marriage in the ascending or descending line; brother or sister of the whole or half blood.

French Law

Marriage is prohibited between all ascendants and descendants in the direct line and between persons related by marriage in the same line.

“Marriage between blood relatives is apt to accentuate in weakness in the family”

                                                                                    -Hirschfeld

“We oppose the union no less strenuously than the Church – we oppose it however not an religious grounds but on eugenic grounds.”                                                                     

                                                                                    -Hirschfeld
