Is dating your cousin bad
Dear Alice, What are the pros and cons (legally and morally) of dating your 1st cousin?
To make a long story short, my cousin and I became close friends, then fell in love with each other.
Regarding your question of the moral consequences of dating your first cousin, it's up to the two of you to know what your values are, what you're thinking about for the future, and what's best for you as individuals, a couple, and a family.
As with all moral decisions, this is a personal, but complicated matter, given societal norms and the many who see cousin marriages as taboo.

However, your child will only have one-half of your genetic pool and would only share one-sixteenth of the genetic pool with your third cousin. Many people who grow up in the same area probably have this much connection with their spouses and do not even know it.
A genetic counselor is a nurse or doctor with special training or expertise who will perform tests and learn about you and your partner's family history.Experts say 1 out of 4 such children will have some sort of disorder.
