Out of state marriage

Recommended Posts

Physical relationships between cousins are a criminal offense in Texas, so although I am not a lawyer, I would say that not only would your marriage not be recognized, there is the possibility of criminal prosecution. Look at Section 25.02 of Texas Penal Code: http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/PE/htm/PE.25.htm. It states that a physical relationship between cousins is a felony in the third degree.

Good luck! I didn't know anything about the laws when my cousin and I got together, and was really worried about it. I hope you and your fiancee can find a good solution.
