All states in America permit you to marry a second cousin. It is illegal in 31 states to marry your first cousin, and legal in 19 states as well as the District of Columbia. There has been no proven genetic issues with marrying a second cousin (as of 2011, although 3 of the Davis' children didn't make it past the age of 2). Offspring produced by first cousins often have some minor complications.
