Just thought I'd point out that my parents are first cousins and so is my brother and his wife. There is nothing wrong with it, but yes in this society there does seem to be something against it.

Yep, and he's a genius
Issac Newton didn't marry at all. Perhaps you're thinking of Darwin. Apparently Darwin was the first to come up with the idea of the 'reduced gene pool' but was reluctant to publish his findings because he'd married his cousin.

Oops. My mistake. Some daft teacher rammed that into my head about 7 years ago and it never dropped (that potentially the cleverist man ever was one particularly nasty man...). Having said that, the young me could have got Newton mixed up with Darwin.

Who are you to judge others?

Biologically speaking, there is enough variation in a gene pool between cousins to avoid any potential problems.

In terms of legality, marrying a cousin doesn’t contravene any laws.

You're entitled to your own opinions, but there's no need to be so insulting, or to personally attack another member.
