Person a is an "older" baal teshuva (30-40 years plus) and grew up knowing he was a kohen. Being a kohen means that at his age there are not likely to be any baalas teshuva women he can marry and marrying someone who comes from a known "frum" family is often an obstacle and not prefered. Is it better this person look for a reason not to be a kohen such as being declared a chalal or should he just wait patiently and hope that one day he might find someone to marry?

    Wouldn't it just be best to seek the truth and not try to make the results be one way?

    Why shouldn't a BT marry an FFB? That seems somewhat backward to me, as an FFB Kohen myself. Commented Jul 13, 2017 at 22:45

    He should have the emunah that Hashem has the perfect one waiting for him. (Sotah 1a) And then he should wait.

    @ezra maybe hashem set this situation up so he'd check and realize he's not really a kohen
