Sir / Madam,
Is it legally acceptable for 2nd cousins to get married?
Can the Son of my 1st cousin (My Dad's elder brother's son) and my daughter be married. Is it legally approved since we have a common grandfather and are cousin brothers - 1st cousins and are our children are 2nd cousins.
Kindly share your views / opinion from the legal point of view.
