One could say that the people commit incest everyday, if they believe that at everybody is related to everybody else at some point in there family history. And that you could be having relations with some one who is related to you through your grandparents 36 generations ago.

If All Men Were Brothers, Would You Let One Marry Your Sister? - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"If All Men Were Brothers, Would You Let One Marry Your Sister?" is a science fiction short story by Theodore Sturgeon. It first appeared in Harlan Ellison's anthology Dangerous Visions in 1967.
It is about an Earthman who comes to the planet Vexvelt, shunned by the rest of colonized universe for unknown reasons. He finds it a utopian paradise, but then discovers to his shock and horror that incest is actively encouraged there. When it is shown that the reason that the planet is a paradise is because of this encouragement of incest then questions are raised of the reader as to how we face 'unpleasant' issues.
