First cousins who say they're in love petition Utah to legally marry each other
Two first cousins from Utah who claim to be in love created a petition calling on their home state to allow them to legally tie the knot. "My first cousin and I have been in love with each other our whole lives but we are prohibited from marrying in the state of Utah where we live," Angela Peang said in the online petition. "We believe that the law is outdated and it needs to be changed so that we can socially legitimize our love," she continued.
Peang and her cousin, Michael Lee, are vying to get 1,000 signatures for the petition.
Peang told CBS News on Wednesday that she has loved her cousin since she was in the second grade. "We just always played a lot," Peang, whose father is the brother of Lee's mother, told the publication of her interactions with her cousin as a child. "We went into a closet and we were kissing and dancing together. It just felt really natural." "He told my mom he was going to marry me," Peang told the news agency.
Peang said her mother told her cousin that they couldn't marry each other but said they could be friends.
Peang said she and her cousin were caught kissing when they were younger while attending a family gathering and were later "kind of kept apart" by their family. "We got in trouble," she said.
The two married other people but have each since divorced. They said they reconnected after nearly a decade of not seeing each other during a family get-together at their grandmother's house on Christmas last year. "We felt a lot of love and missed each other over the years," Peang told CBS News. "We decided that we were just going to be open with our love. It was really scary to think about how our family would react because they are conservative Mormons ... we thought we might be excluded." Though the two are unable to legally marry each other in Utah, as state law only affords that option to cousins over the age of 65, they were able to get hitched in Grand Junction, Colo., earlier this week
