Yeah, I know this one is weird, but I heard of a couple (I don't know if they got married) who were cousins and they've been together for a while. They've even done...some adult things...together. That's one reason I think you shouldn't be with a cousin. You may end up with strange children. I should broaden this. Is it alright to marry inside of the family (NO!)?

Don't marry your cousin...you'll have ski-foo kids! (For those who don't know who ski-foo is...you dont want him as a child). But then It all depends how they're your cousin. If its like...your uncle/aunts kid...that a little messed up. But if its your 3rd cousins husbands great niece...that far enough far...plus thru marriage...so thats kool...
Well, I wouldn't do it personally, but if you love the person, then go for it. Also, I base my beliefs on what animals do, if animals don't mind, humans shouldn't care either, regardless of their intelligence.
There's this thing you see called arranged marriages that are still practiced around the world. Semi-often the people being married are cousins. Why? This is so they get more of the family wealth. So it is ok to marry your cousin, just not in the U.S. because it's not part of our culture.
