Hell fe8 had twincest in japan
People like to say the incest cycle wasn’t broken until FE9, but that is quite untrue seeing as Geoffrey and Elincia were raised as siblings basically with Lucia (forgot how young they were when that started though), and Geoffrey is Elincia’s only marriage ending in FE10. Sothe thought of Micaiah like an older sister if I remember right (or was it more motherly, considering his age when they met?), and they can also marry. Not blood incest, but FE4 has Altenna/Arion in much the same way. There was never really a halt in the incestuous relationships. Adoptive or not, they were always still there. It didn’t stop after eight, and it didn’t go away for 13.
Tbh if there was a marriage system in FE14, that could be kind of interesting since now you’ve got enemies being adoptive siblings AND in-law siblings, and I mean, imagine trying to get your sibling back to your side but they’ve married your enemy and you don’t want to hurt your sibling’s feelings. They’re your enemy, but now your in-law. It’d be a nice addition to the plot, but at the same time, marriage is not a key aspect to this plot so it doesn’t need to be there.
And that, friends, is why we use fanfiction and roleplaying.
