Some states allow first cousins to marry.  Some of those states allow it with restrictions and some have none.  A Spanish speaking couple I knew had asked me to help them learn what they needed for a civil ceremony in Denver back in the 1980s.  So I checked into the process for them and found out all this other information about marriage laws in Colorado.  I always found it funny about the cousins getting married and just tucked it away in the back of my mind. Recently I came across this post and thought I would pass it along.  Interesting to say the least. This info is taken from Cousin Marriage License Laws in the U.S. by , the Marriage Expert at About.com
