The Devil's In The Details.

I love the unintentional humor in awkward moments, don't you?

I shouldn't even joke because cousins marrying cousins actually happens a lot more than you'd probably think.
A few years ago, one of my cousins married my other cousin who lived in a different country their entire life who he'd met when he finally went to go visit that family. The more Americanized cousins were a little grossed out, but my overseas family didn't see the problem in it at all.
My dad, being the perfectly dark-humored gentleman that he is, just said something along the lines of: "Well, at least she knows he comes from a good family."

What do you guys think about cousins marrying cousins? Does only being 3rd or 4th cousins make it okay? Or is it still taboo?

I think this happens accidentally too. When I was younger, my dad's family lived near us. Since I didn't see his family often, I could bump into a cousin on the street and not know it. It's still a bit creepy to think that you could accidentally date your cousin.

@danidee Personally I'd prefer not to marry a cousin. It's actually funny doh. I met a distant cousin on my dads side of the family, had never met him before, but he looked just like my first cousin. My brother had a track meet and he was there with his school. I had to do a double take and I told him, boy if you don't look like my cousin! We took him to my granddad, who was there too, and he looked at him and asked his last name, and kid said Johnson and he's like yeah we have family named Johnson. I was mind blown 馃槀

Well,as long as they're genetically far apart,I don't see a problem with it.Other relatives,like siblings for instance,could cause their offspring to have problems...Plus,what if it's the case where,although you are family,you never met/grew up with them?You won't have a sibling-like relationship,and it'll be like meeting a stranger*shrugs*
