Putting aside every family has an ethnicity, pretty sure 2nd cousin marriage is legal pretty much everywhere in the US, third cousins no problem anywhere.


True, and in most states you can marry your first cousin, once removed, but not your first cousin. What this means is that you can't marry your first cousin, but can marry his or her kid.

A 2009 study found that many Arab countries display some of the highest rates of consanguineous marriages in the world, and that first cousin marriages which may reach 25-30% of all marriages.

If Democrats enacted legislation legalizing incest then Arkansas would all of sudden become a swing state...

What is the social harm if siblings or cousins want to marry?, besides birth defects of course. What is the political reasoning behind banning intrafamily marriage?


If it may please the court, I would like to submit this for the record.

Really, the increased risk of birth defects from first cousins breeding isn't significant at all.


FWIW, With the genetic testing available today this is no longer an issue in any situation.

I think Einstein married someone who was both his first (maternally) and second (paternally) cousin.

What is this, New York City all of a sudden? The burden of justification of restraining individuals' freedom to engage in consensual activities or enterprises lies with the government. Free people don't (or shouldn't) have to ask permission from the government to do consensual things.


@Quentin, same reason gay marriage is marginalized and used to be banned outright -- enough people think it's icky and like so gross and omg super offensive, and have so little respect for others' freedom that they think it's okay to restrain it to preserve their fragile, delicate little sensibilities.

I think this was a marriage that wasn't physically consummated and was done when Einstein was a bit elderly. Seems as if it was done for legal and inheritance purposes.

Imma gonna go out on a limb here and suggest that parents having sex with their children just isn't good policy.

I'd also like to point out the sexist dichotomy with regards to inter-familial intercourse. A daughter who has sex with her father would not seem to incur any lasting stigma, however a son having sex with his mother would be a mutha-fricker for the rest of his life. #WARONMF'ERS
