Can someone please give me valid reasons why one cannot marry within family?


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?

No, I am not using the childish argument that anti gay marriage people use.

I think birth defects is a good reason.

Give us a good reason why they should be able too?

It was common practice until a few generations ago. Also I know ethnic families marry 2nd and third cousins to try and keep the families in that ethnicity.

Like I know Croats that were all dating cousins.

(their mothers 2nd cousins and stuff)

Inbreeding may result in a far higher phenotypic expression of deleterious recessive genes within a population than would normally be expected.[7] As a result, first-generation inbred individuals are more likely to show physical and health defects, including:
Reduced fertility both in litter size and sperm viability
Increased genetic disorders
Fluctuating facial asymmetry
Lower birth rate
Higher infant mortality
Slower growth rate
Smaller adult size
Loss of immune system function

Because the kids grow up to be tree poisoners, or they teabag strangers at Krystal's.

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

There really is no good reason for them to not be allowed to marry.

There ain't no reason for it....hell if your own family ain't good enough for your ain't nobody gonna be....


So is it true that a 14 year old ALabama girl, after sex, says "get up Daddy your squashing my cigarettes"....hell those things are expensive these days....

more revenue from marriage certificates. And because it's america, I don't give a shite if you date your cousin. It's weird i'll probably make fun of you for it, but I really couldn't care less.

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.

Seems like parents would be concerned about who their kids marry not who their aunts grand children marry.
