Yes indeed it is true that marriage in the family can lead to children with genetic defects. So it would be wise for you to heed to what your parents say. Meanwhile you can also consult a doctor and see if there can be anything done to overcome the genetic problem. Wishing you all the best.

hey i agree with amrish, i feel you should contact the dr, Their are many ways you can improve the child preformance.. my friends also got married to her uncle son. i dont feel that they will have genetic problem. The problem may get more worse when all will do the same, means if your dad/grandpa has got married in the same family tree. then i think you should not but if you are the first one, then i think their are chances. enjoy :)

In my Country, it's not also ideal to marry a relative but a lot of people I know who reject their parents advice and go on marrying the one that they love...How close are you related? like 2nd degree of 3rd degree? Well, if that will make you happy, you can always do it as long as both of you are ready for whatever consequences!

Your parents are right dsankar_87.. Whatever your parents say will be for your goodness.. And yes there might be some genetic problems for your children which you might recognise later.. Just forget your love for god's sake.. So better not to marry within relations.. Anyhow consult your family doctor and then take decisions.. Have a nice day.. CHEERS!!!

your uncle's daughter? therefore he is your cousin? i don't know man the love maybe right but i dont know if the person is, the issue of ur situation is not only about the genetic defects.
