Amanda Knox probably dodged a bullet when she stopped seeing this guy, even if it was because they were separated while in prison for the murder of Meredith Kercher. It seems that Raffaele Sollecito and Annie Achille are far more than what some people would call "kissing cousins."
This is just bizarre, and honestly it kind of brings more questions about Raffaele Sollecito than can be asked of Amanda Knox. Incest is a wide umbrella term in this case, as some people have varying definitions for this very taboo word. Nonetheless, Sollecito is apparently deeply in love with his own cousin. Ponder on that for a while and consider the benefits of Sollecito marrying his cousin:
- He'll only have to attend one family reunion.
- Everyone in his family has already met her, and most likely love her.
- He now pretty much has an idea of what it would be like to date an even more feminine version of himself.
- After dating Amanda Knox, his family wanted him "close to home." Now they got what they asked for, and more!
Raffaele Sollecito apparently has an attraction to women who look similar. His cousin-girlfriend, Annie, does have a slight resemblance to Foxy Knoxy, but really does look like her future husband (as it's been reported and argued). Well, now there's an explanation as to why they look so similar. Could this be indicative of a sort of narcissistic love of one's self? That's probably way to heavy to speculate when the most entertaining fact of the matter has already been mentioned. But how does Amanda Knox feel about this?
Her and Raffaele Sollecito literally went through hell together. Whether or not you believe they're guilty, they certainly endured some hardships as a young couple who were split apart by an investigation, trial and conviction. Ultimately, by the time their convictions were appealed, both went along their with their own lives. It's bittersweet, and it seems that Sollecito certainly hasn't gone toward a healthy lifestyle of dating women outside of his own gene pool.
It doesn't seem like even Foxy Knoxy herself would go for something like that and she's admittedly promiscuous to the point that Italian officials had, at one time, allegedly convinced her that she'd contracted HIV/Aids. Hopefully she's really been tested since her release, because after a scare like that it seems that anyone in their right mind would want to be in the clear with a credible exam and workover by one of their home doctors. Certainly she's done all of that since she's been home, right?
