Hi, LovelyR. I think LadyC and KC are from texas, they're both administrators so hopefully they could advise you about this.

LadyC is from Texas as am I. KC however is from North Carolina.

I am not as familiar with the law,except for the fact that it is illegal for first cousins.

I am married to my second cousin so it doesn't apply to us and we are not in the baby business either. Lol

LadyC or CM (ColoradoMarried) would be of more help. But I do not think you will like the

answer to your question.

Hang around and one of them or Hawk will show up eventully..

Your welcome, as said though just wait for LadyC or the others to help you out on this. I googled first cousin's in Texas and it does say it's illegal, but 2nd cousin marriage Isn't.

Hope you find a genetic counceller, even if it's out of Texas  :smiley:

Good luck

I wouldn't seek genetic counseling unless there is some special reason to do so. The NSOGC doesn't think it is necessary for cousins. If it would make you feel better, then there is no reason that you can't seek the advice of a GC. Don't worry about it being illegal. I doubt they turn you in. Oh, the Tx law is a black eye to us all.
