Marriage to a cousin



Can two first cousins get married?



It is halachically permitted for them to marry each other because they are not considered ervah to each other, and this was done many times in past generations. However on a practical level there are those who say that it can be very unhealthy and dangerous to the children in a genetic way.

Best wishes
