first of all, cousin marriages ARE ALLOWED in the bible. please check out our religion info pages for more about that. there are plenty of times in the bible where God actually commanded the marriage of first cousins.

second of all, please tell me where you find the information that it is illegal in zambia for you to marry? http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/population/countries/zambia/THE%20MARRIAGE%20ACT.htm shows the marriage laws, and the only thing i see that talks about prohibited degrees of kinship is to refer back to england's laws in that regard. and it is legal under england's laws for cousins to marry.

you have two children. verify the facts regarding legalities, and then go get married. i'm not familiar with your culture there, but if the two of you are legal adults and have the legal right to marry, then your parents really shouldn't have any say in the matter. your children deserve to have parents who are married, don't you think?
