"While there is a widespread cultural taboo against incest, there appears to be no modern consensus on whether all such relationships should be banned or how close is too close when it comes to familial relationships. All U.S. states and most countries bar marriages within the nuclear family, but American cultural mores aside, there is far less agreement about half siblings or first cousins." 05-08

"Find Divorce lawyers specializing in divorce laws, pre nuptial rights, establishing paternity, mediation, visitation rights, property division, and absolute divorce."
"Although divorces may be emotionally contentious, most (probably more than 95 percent) do not end up in a contested trial. Usually the parties negotiate and settle such things as division of property, spousal support, and child custody between themselves, often with a lawyer's help. Divorce Lawyers sometimes work with both parties to reach an agreement by mediation, with a trained mediator who tries to help husband and wife identify and accommodate common interests. The lawyer and the two parties then present their negotiated or mediated agreement to a judge. Approval is virtually automatic if the agreement appears to meet a minimal standard of fairness." 05-07
- Gore Divorce Touches a Nerve (CNN News)
"As a family researcher, I understand why the Gore breakup scares people. Divorces after 40 years are rare, but in 2008, of people who reported divorcing recently, one-quarter had been in marriages that had lasted two decades or more. And divorces among couples 55 or older seem to be rising moderately, even as divorce rates in general have fallen from a high of about 23 divorces per 1,000 married couples in 1979 to less than 17 per 1000 in 2005." 05-10
