There has been a big controversy because of the German siblings that have got married and have four children. It´s very difficult for everybody to give good arguments about what they think about this item. 

On the one hand, about 17.65% of comments are in favour of love in all the circumstances, I mean, true love. In addition, it´s also true that nobody can choose his relatives, and much less the person you fall in love with. However, it´s not very logical to talk about love when discussing about siblings having children, because they can love each other, but it´s very different from doing sexual things. The most important thing about this is that they are happy together and, if they didn´t know that they were siblings at first, it doesn´t really matter that they are in love with each other. 

On the other hand, we also have to notice that incest is a crime in almost all the developed world and this means that people don´t accept it for many reasons, such as moral and scientific ones. Furthermore, the couples of siblings in love can adopt their children, rather than having them themselves, as it´s very risky for the babies because they can have several diseases and it´s also dangerous in a genetical way. 

To sum up, as the vast majority of people disagreed with couples of siblings having children, it seems that what people think is that incest is a crime against the law and also against the biogenetics and it should stay like that.
