It is legal for First cousins to get married as long as they don't marry each other. Hope that answers your question. Me and all of my First cousins are married but, we don't live in WV.

I had planned to bring my Wife to Mountain Lake Lodge in WV and redo our marriage vows, but now I have reservations due to your laws that are pertinent to marriage. Being that she is my Wife and so close in kinship to me, now it looks as though she is going to be brokenharted when I tell her we can't get reget married in WV. What is your State coming to when a man and wife can't get married there in that beautiful State?
