I'm just wondering me and my first cousin have been together almost 6 years. But one day we would like to have kids but how are we able to have kids? Everyone says they will be retarded. :unsure:but how can I find that out?? I just need answers.

Go to genetic counseling and research both your family histories of diseases. My husband, who is my first cousin, and I have a healthy and normal son together. Plenty of members have also had healthy children with their cousins also. The risk of first cousins having children together are only 2%-4% higher than non-related couples. That risk increases if previous consanguineous marriages were present in either of your families.

Don't listen to everyone! It is possible to have healthy children, just be smart and do your research!

Do us all a favor and don't have any kids. There is no rule that says you must!
