This article from Vietnam tells the story of Dinh Van Minh, 50, and Dinh Thi Man, 52. When they were 6 and 8, the siblings were orphaned and then became separated. What ended up happening may or may not be a result of Genetic Sexual Attraction, but it most definitely is a beautiful love story.
Talented and good-looking, Minh was the target of several girls at a boarding school in Tay Son District, where he was attending continuing education class in 1976. But the girl who won his heart was Man.
They married each other and only stumbled upon their original relationship in 1982, after Man gave birth to their first daughter.
That’s when ignorance took over around them. Thankfully, they didn’t let ignorance by others break them apart.
"I was in great shock. Neighbours advised us to separate. They felt scared of us. Many families actually decided to move to other areas," Minh told the Thanh Nien (Young People) newspaper.
"But I thought: What would she do if I left her? At that time, our daughter was just three months old."
Minh was sent to prison for two years. I don’t know why he was prosecuted and she wasn’t. But after the prison term, he went back to his lifelong love.
They have since had another child and their children have grown up, married and had their own children, all of whom are normal.
The ignorant people who think children born to consanguineous lovers will be disabled need to read that.
There should have been no prosecution. They belong together. How could anyone be against their love?
