About marriage with the cousin of the second remove

22 iun 2009 | ora 18.41 Family | Vasile Filat

Question:

My friend was proposed marriage by her cousin of the second remove. I want to know if God allows such marriages. Thank you for your help and advice.

In chapter 18 of the book of Leviticus are listed all blood relatives whom God does not allow to marry among themselves. Neither in this list nor in any other texts of the Holy Scriptures God prohibits the marriage to the first or second cousin.
