Couple claims they’re actually cousins but refuse to break up 3-year marriage: ‘I wish we were joking’


A married Utah couple claimed they are actually cousins and don’t plan on ending their marriage, according to the Daily Mail. Tylee and Nick Waters said they have been married for three years, but somehow had no idea they were from the same family tree.

The couple was told they looked alike before, and now it’s pretty clear as to why in a viral TikTok, that has been viewed over 5.7 million times. The video starts out with Nick wrapping one arm around his supposed cousin-wife Tylee, as they share a kiss to Lynyrd Skynyrd’s iconic tune “Sweet Home Alabama.”

The pair never explained how they are related, and neither did they spill the beans on how they found out. Mixed feelings flooded the couples comment section, like this reply from an angry viewer, “That’s disgusting… we are not going to take incest relationships and try and make them normal.. both of you need therapy.”
