    Marriage usually results in children. Said children will be (most likely) disabled. Why would you want that?
    One, or even several, generations of incest are harmless. The mutations start accumulating after 5+ generations.

    Interestingly, blue and green eyes are the result of incest in the originator tribe.

    Lol at all the people saying its more likely that the children will be born with disabilities
    Er no it won't
    I know plenty ofppl who've done it and come out with healthy kids
    People are hypocrites, if u wanna stop disabled babies then stop smoking or drinking when ur pregnant

    I love how white people are branding this disgusting lol as if your culture is better sleeping around multiple times then get married and pass all those stds on lol hypocrites as if that's not disgusting at all

    I would hardly refer to a 3% increase as probable

    I wouldn't marry one of mine, and I find the whole thing quite weird but I physically cannot rationalise a logical reason why somebody shouldn't do it since the disabled children argument is effectively invalidated by contraception and the fact that the chances still aren't high anyway unless there's multiple generations of weirdness going on.

    So um... people can do it if they want I guess?

    No problem with it, genetic issues actually become something to consider after multiple generations - and i'm not talking 2 or 3 generations more along the lines of 6-7.

    So IMO no problem with cousin marriage (there's a reason it's legal pretty much everywhere) but I personally wouldn't as I have been raised with my cousins and view them as siblings.
