wow seriously? marrying your first cousin can technically be considered incest.
and not only is that a cardinal social taboo (sorry, i'm reading hamlet in class), but it also poses major health risks to the children who were conceived by a related couple. i'm talking major birth defects.
nothing wrong with gay marriage though. stupid state legislature. -____-
Honestly, the legal definition of marriage is crap. Any 2 people should be able to marry. Period. If people dont like it for religious reasons, I agree that there is an issue because marriage is one of those things that church and state dont separate. So make marriage religious only and call it something else for legal purposes.
And that map is somewhat misleading. At least for the state of Indiana, special permission still has to be granted for first cousins to marry.
