There is some risk but it is not a great danger, like you said.

The percentage of mentally ill or handicapped children in non-cousin marriages (throughtout the world) is about 2%. The same percentage for first-cousin marriages is about 4%. So the risk is about double, but it is still only 4%. The rest of the 96% first-cousin marriages produce perfectly normal, healthy children.

Brother :) acually it has been scientifically proven that it does not effet you child in any way...thats all just a "myth". Also, if it would effect your child in such a way then it would be Haram. For anything that "hurts" us is haram.

The dangers of marrying family members really only take affect over multiple generations. Odds in the first generation even of family closer than first cousin is unlikely, by the third and fourth however the odds grow dramatically. The farther apart (after 2nd cousin it really doesn't matter) the less likely it is to occur. A good case in point would be the royal families of europe. They were in the habit of marrying first cousins continually it took around seven generations of this before it major problems began arising.

all of them are married already!! so i'm safe there. it just messes up relations with the parents/his parents.

why how?

if hes a good hubby it shouldnt

ur righth theres more contact, but there are some advantages, i think this way the girl maybe gets to spend mroe time with her parents aswell
