I don't see anything wrong with it as long as don't have any kids together and by law they can't get married in Kentucky

so if you have kids are you telling me that they can date YOUR cousin? thats all a second cousn is.... your parents 1st cousin. that is disgusting... your parents know them as family so why in the hell wouldnt they be counted as family. i was in my second cousins wedding, and i see him all the time. that would make for a really awkward christmas.
"its not like your brother or sister" would you date your 1st cousin?

Morally it's wrong.. However scientifically speaking, second cousin is far enough removed genetically not to spawn any genetically recessive offspring.. The elite of Europe have done this for centuries, even the Romans 'inbred'... So if u can handle the social stigma associated w/ this go for it, as long as it's not a sibling or first cousin..

My second cousin's grandmothers are sisters. That means we have the same great grandparents which means we are related by blood. Nasty? Yes.

I know somone who married what Ky considers their first cousin and both had same last name. They were asked if they were kin and they said yes, their dads are half brothers. I was with them when they went to get their marriage license, however I do not agree with this it was their decision.
WRONG

Ok it does appear that Ky stopped 1st cousin marriages however regarding second cousins it says:
Cousin Marriages
Note: All states allow the marriage of second cousins.

Information from:
About.com , Marriage, cousin marriages, marriage license laws,

http://marriage.about.com/cs/marriagelicenses...

I myself could not imagine marrying anyone of my cousins, 1st - 1,000,000 th! It is disgusting to me.

Everyone on Earth is a cousin to some degree. That's why we're doomed. Idiocracy is coming. A planet full of inbred sheep buggers baking in the global warming.
