But in Iceland, with its measly island population of just 320,000, shared ancestry between its inhabitants is far more common, leading to far higher chance of confusing familial relations. Okay, so maybe in modern Britain, with its ever-growing population and where offspring are staying in the town they were born less and less, this is a rather rare scenario.Anti-virus software developer Friðrik Skúlason had earlier produced an online database to allow Icelanders to trace their heritage online, before three app developers took the information and made a specific anti-incest feature on their Book of Icelanders Android app.The producers, from Sad Engineer Studios, told the Digital Trends website that the app works by two users bumping their phones together to instantly see if they are related."The 'Incest Prevention' is a fun feature that the user can enable through the options menu which will notify him with both text and sound if the one he bumps with someone who is too related to him," they said."We aren't sure if other countries have such interestingly interwoven bloodlines like we do, but we’re pretty sure the Icelandic genealogy database is unique in its completeness.Here's the full text: YES, we me nick are engaged.

One could argue that they're a better match than say, Britney Spears and Kevin Federline, who knew one another for three months before becoming engaged.
The prohibition of intermarriage is also based upon genetic considerations, since when excessive inbreeding takes place, undesirable recessive genes become expressed and genetic defects and disease are more readily perpetuated.
In addition, the incest taboo is universal in human culture.
Pretty sure it's my own decision who I want to be with. We will have rough patches, just like every other relationship.
