Gay marriage is only legal in five states, but you can marry your first cousin in twenty-five states – including South Carolina.

Five states place age restrictions on these unions (or require that one of the two participants be incapable of producing children), while North Carolina prohibits the marriage of “double cousins” (i.e. assume your mom and our mom were sisters … gross). Maine merely requires that the couple in question has received a certificate of “genetic counseling.”

Ahhh … “genetic counseling.”

Anyway, South Carolina is one of twenty states that permits cousin marriage under any circumstances …
