People should not marry their first cousins, no more than they are  currently allowed to marry their own siblings.  Offspring of such unions have such a high incidence of life threatening and or crippling genetic abnormalities that not to legislate against this practise is morally wrong.

Why is this idea important?

The practise of first cousins marrying has such a high emotional and health cost to the individuals concerned and the state, one neither party should have to pay anymore.
