Cousin Marriage

The ethical, legal and societal problems behind the question of whether cousins should be able to marry.

Prohibited in some states, but very common in the Middle East and Asian communities, cousin marriages result in a small increase in the number of babies with genetic problems. How serious is the problem, and how should it be addressed in the UK? Should our human rights to marry and reproduce be constrained by wider societal considerations?
