Okay, where is it okay to marry your (first) cousin? Seriously, it is anywhere?

I'll have to look it up again, but there are a surprising number of places where second cousins can marry and even one where first cousins can marry...the only qualification being that they are over a certain age - 50 or 65, can't remember - and unable to reproduce. Genetic counseling is also a requirement in other cases.

I'll go back and look at my notes.
