  • Not bad but not encouraged due to the presence of other options. It becomes bad if its more frequent in the family. If its not as frequent and in case they fell in love its not wrong.

  • There should be no issues other than medical/genetic ones. First cousin marriage is in fact current legal in 19 U. S. states and sometimes legal in 7 others. It is also legal in Canada, Mexico, and as far as I know all of Europe. Children of non-related couples have a 2-3% risk of birth defects, as opposed to first cousins having a 4-6% risk. If one really wants to lower the risk of birth defects to the negligible, the solution is to marry outside of one's ethnicity.

  • The medical issues should be a good enough reason though.

  • I suppose it has to do with tradition (aside from medical reasons).
