    From the internet

    Children whose parents are close biological relatives are at a greater average risk of inheriting genetic disorders, Bittles writes. Studies of cousin marriages worldwide suggest that the risks of illness and early death are three to four percent higher than in the rest of the population.

    Marrying a cousin is usually considered a bad idea, because inbreeding can lead to harmful genetic conditions.

    yes.. distant cousins do marry.. our prophet though did recommend to try to marry more distantly away and to bring new blood into your family for health reasons, but its not illegal to marry a cousin..

    Its really bad and disgusting and horrible its hideous thing and deprived 

    Your kids might be born with deficiencies and sick 

    In Greece the Greek Orthodox church forbids it since 8 generations back so if you have an 8th cousin its still forbidden 

    Ancient Greeks forbid it too 

    This is bad for us

    Islam has not contributed to civilisation to the world  in art inventions intellectual thinking

    Not all muslims marry cousins,, 

    It's mostly pakis.

    We allow them do so we keep them in low intelligence.

    Pakistanis are our slaves forever like our DM said period.

    Marrying a cousin is fine almost everywhere in the world.  It is only an issue that I know of in the USA, and not even everywhere there.
