    Yup, if the 2 fathers are cousins, then the children are cousins too. Unless the kids are step kids, then there would be no blood relationship. There are varying degrees of cousins, you would have to find out if the fathers are first cousins, meaning they are the children of siblings or not.

    Yes, just more distant. For example if your friend's dad and your Dad are second cousins, you are third cousins with you friend.

    That means your father and that guy's father have grandparents in common, which means you and that guy have great-grandparents in common, which makes you second cousins. I experienced that at a party in my early teens. I met a girl, and she was very attractive. But since she was a 2nd cousin, I could relax, as there was no dating possibility.

    Your dad's first cousin is your second cousin.

      No. Your Dad's first cousin is your first cousin once removed. Dad's first cousin's child is your second cousin.

    If you have a shared ancestor then yes.

    You're either second cousins or cousins once removed, I never know which but I bet someone else will.
