Answer 2:
Yes, in the State of Florida you can marry your first cousin. Florida Statute ยง741.21 prohibits marriages between people related by lineal consanguinity (relation in a direct line such as between parent, child and grandparent). It also prohibits a man from marrying his sister, aunt or niece and it prohibits a woman from marrying her brother, uncle or nephew. There is no prohibition against marrying a cousin. Several famous people have married their cousins including Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Albert Einstein and Rudy Giuliani.
