Keeping it in the family


Dear Steve and Shirley, please help me. 

What I want to do may cause turmoil within the family. Here’s the situation… 

A young lady and I have a crush on each other, but she used to be married to someone that was related to me by marriage. She used to be married to my stepfather’s sister’s son. Her husband is deceased now. Before her husband died, we had only seen each other three times. After the third time, we realized we had a connection, so we kept in touch. We only texted each other on special occasions and holidays back then. Now we text more frequently and we enjoy each other’s company. We know that we are not related, but out of respect for the family, we want to do the right thing. She keeps trying to hide her feelings, but I can tell how she feels about me. She also encouraged me to write this letter to you for your opinion. So, should we move on with our lives or can we pursue a relationship to see what happens? We really need your help with this to prevent a disaster. 

Do you think it would cause a major problem with our family? 

Please advise.
