This is why so many people have decided to marry their cousins, anyway. The energy pull of this soul, which is so much like theirs, is irresistible. Here are a few cases of well-known people who married their cousins because of this overwhelming affinity:
- Edgar Allan Poe married his first cousin Virginia Eliza Clemm when he was 27 and she was 13.
- Charles Darwin married his first cousin Emma Wedgwood. They had 10 children.
- Albert Einstein married Elsa, his first cousin on his mother’s side and his second cousin on his father’s side. Her original last name was also Einstein.
- Jesse James married his first cousin Zerelda. She was named for Jesse’s mother.
One of the greatest pairings of twin-flame cousins was John and Abigail Adams, whose rich, lifelong correspondence while he was away from home shows a deep soul connection and an eternal love that characterizes Twin Flames.
The Soul does not comprehend man-made conventions. It only knows Divine Love. If a person shares the same bloodline (with the possibility of genetic consequences in their offspring) it still may be too difficult to be without them. That is the sign of true Twin Flames. They must be together!
