If a brother and sister committed incest, but they use protection, it improves their relationship, and ultimately harms no one due to it being a secret, is it still morally wrong?

Aside from the obvious intrinsic issues with incest:
While your question assumes benefits for their relationship, what about the long term negative effects of an illicit sexual relationship that will produce a certain amount of instability, either in their own relationship or in their relationships with others.
For example, what about the long term pressure of coping with the burden of keeping it secret and the inevitable anxiety over being discovered?
Wouldn't that also mean they are likely to eventually have to keep this secret from their spouses? Serious secrets, particularly ones like this, can significantly damage a marriage.
What happens when one of them wants to stop this aspect of their relationship? It's unlikely that won't have negative results for one or both of them that are significantly worse and different than normal relationships because of their inherent isolation and secrecy.
Also, no birth control is perfect, so there will always be a risk of pregnancy.
If it genuinely does no harm to anyone, I don't see how you can argue it's wrong. That said, if they have to keep it a secret that suggests that there might otherwise be some actual harm. That part concerns me somewhat so I'm a bit hesitant.
I do understand it may merely be stigma, which I see as harmful only to the stigmatized individuals (in which case, that's their choice assuming they are consenting adults with full capacity).
Seriously?! How can so many people think it's morally ok for a guy to screw his sister? Our world has a major sickness brewing.
"Improves their relationship"? WTF?!
It's not appropriate to me, but it should be legal at least. It's not the government's job to criminalize behavior that doesn't harm anyone else.
What two consenting adults do in their own private spaces isn't my business.
Are you seeking permission🤔
What happens when the king dies and then it is thrown into light that the new king and all the royal children are all bastards from their uncle? I'll tell you what happens! The north calls for civil war while the 2 brothers of the now dead king fight each other, the rightful brother wins, and then the whole 7 kingdoms go to hell. It's that simple folks!!
I think you missed the point of this question
Depends. Is mom still live-streaming it?
I said it improved their relationship and that there was no side effect. This was meant to be an exercise in how much emotion drives us, even when all evidence points towards the opposite. Emotivism. I guess I didn't specify enough
I just applied the natural and logical issues that would arise from such a relationship.
Degenerate - someone who makes morally wrong choices. No, I got it just fine. Any questions?
It's completely acceptable if you are an atheist.
Sorry that I made you guys think.
Sounds like a degenerate
That's just sick
I think the long term effect may hamper the two's ability to form mature relationships later.
Still very wrong
You thought through it too much. I said it improved their relationship and that there was no side effect. This was meant to be an exercise in how much emotion drives us, even when all evidence points towards the opposite. Emotivism.
