Is it okay to marry a distant cousin?

on Apr 25, 2014 , 03:19 pm
I was to get married this year but due to some reasons, it got called off. Now, my parents are talking about getting me married to a distant cousin in the family. I don't know whether this is right or not but I find this idea of marrying my own cousin very creepy. Though I haven't met him much in all these years, it's only during family weddings or occasions that we got to see each other.

I am really confused what to do. My parents feel there's nothing wrong but I have heard that if you marry someone from within the family, there are some medical complications that come at a later stage. Please advice me what should I do.
