narendra,

I've been taught to respect my elders, but, I must say, your parents are idiots. You two are SECOND cousins, NOT BROTHER AND SISTER. I really don't get how such outdated notions, based on outdated practices can hang on so stubbornly. How a people who generally have a high scientific aptitude can still believe such silliness is beyond me. You can go to the main page here, copy the facts, and show them, but, you'll be wasting your time. However, so far as we know, second cousins are legal to marry in India. ( I did have a little peek to see what country you were in, even though I didn't need to, considering the "cousin is your brother/sister" BS)

My advice? Find out for sure if second cousins can legally marry, then marry the girl, show them the facts, and a legal marriage certificate, then tell them the conversation on the matter is closed. Then, stick to your guns. Do not succumb to their drama and foolishness. Move to a different town if you have to, so you don't have to listen to it. Get away from their toxicity before it destroys you, your cousin, and your relationship.

to my knowledge i've never heard of a country that prohibited 2nd cousins from marrying. there is certainly nowhere in the united states or western civilizations that prohibits it.
