In my own extended family I have seen this problem up close: not people directly related to ME, but my father's brother's wife was from a family where the other two sisters married two brothers who were cousins with them. The two sisters had 6 children among them, two of whom had various degrees of mental retardation. It just ain't wise: there is a higher degree probability of birth defects AUTOMATICALLY, though, of course it doesn't always happen/\
Marrying a cousin, on the face of it, always seemed to be to me just a very LAZY thing to do, kind of creepily convenient, like Woody Allen falling in love and marrying his and Miaa's adopted Asian child, technically his "daughter" , whatever her name is.
