I am going to marry my first cousin (daughter of the sister of my mother).
The cousin marriage has been common in mother side the family.

Bother my mother and her sister are from cousins couple (our grand parents). Both of my grand parents were from cousin couples (our grand grand parents). May be also in upper generations.

The positive thing is that both my mother and her mother are married far outside families.

Now how serious is this matter in our marriage decision?

I am very thankful for the help
