I guess if there 1st , 2nd or 3rd cousins its not right.
On a genetic level, 2nd cousins are far enough apart that they're no more likely to have children with birth defects than two unrelated people. Even 1st cousins are reasonably safe. It all has to do with how likely two people are of being carriers for genetic disorders.
it's another story, and depends on what you believe and where you live. In many places marriage between 2nd cousins is allowed, and even 1st cousins in some places.
I had a crush on my cousin when I was a kid, but that's about it. I no longer feel that way and wouldn't pursue a relationship even if I did. I'm on the fence about whether or not I completely disapprove of other people doing it.
The short answer is that I'd prefer not to see it, but probably won't call anyone out on it, either.
