Dear Wanza,

The decision to marry your cousin or not is purely influenced by your culture and traditions. There are cultures that allow cousins to marry while other don't. It is important that you find out what yours says about marriage between cousins, it will inform you on whether to continue with the marriage or not.

Another thing you may want to consider is the effects that are caused by close relatives marriages, studies have shown that the children of closely related couples have more chance of birth defects than children of unrelated parents. This is why marrying or having sexual relationships with close relatives is often considered harmful.

Wish you the best.
