Calvary greetings to you and your family in
the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. My
name is Anthony Okechukwu I'm a great fan
of you. I love what you do and I pray for
more grace of God in your life and the life of
your family
Pleas I have a question is it Lawful for
someone
to get married to his or ha cousin the
relationship is very distant (we share thesame
great-grandparent i.e my grandmother and her
grandfather are siblings which makes her father
and my father 1st cousins and both of us 2nd
cousins) pleas I
really
need a clear answer to this question
because
there are examples of people that were
married from their family . Eleazar's
daughters
each
married first cousins, as they were
instructed( I
Chronicles 23:22). also the daughters of
Zelophehad in numbers 36:6 downware See below
Forbidden Marriages Scripture
Between parents and children -Leviticus
18:7-8
Between stepparents and stepchildren-
Leviticus 18:8, 17
With your paternal or maternal aunt-
Leviticus
18:12-13
With your uncle or aunt -Leviticus 18:14
Between brother and sister and half-brother
and half-sister-Leviticus 18:9
Between stepbrothers and stepsisters-
Leviticus
18:11
With your daughter-in-law -Leviticus 18:15
With your sister-in-law -Leviticus 18:16
With your granddaughter -Leviticus 18:10
With your step-granddaughter -Leviticus

However, it's important to remember that
many laws do condemn this type of
marriage
and Christians are commanded to "Submit
yourselves to every ordinance of man for
the
Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as
supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them
that
are sent by him for the punishment of
evildoers, and for the praise of them that do
well. For so is the will of God, that with well
doing ye may put to silence the ignorance
of
foolish men" (1 Peter 2:13-15, See also
Romans
13:1-2). Pleas give biblical evidence of your
answer.
Thanks sir

@tonexx,
I guess it depends a little bit upon where you live. If you live in the US, you are ok to marry a 2nd cousin in most if not all states. I'm guessing it is probably ok in most other countries as well. But this is a better question to be asking someone with knowledge of your local laws.

@tonexx,
Your concerns seem to be mainly 'spiritual'. You are correct that marrying almost anyone could get a pass in the bible. And when God's laws are in conflict with man's law, what does the bible say? And as far as that goes, why not extra wives? Or 'auxiliary' wives (concubines). There isn't any biblical rule about extra marital sex either, just don't make it adulterous.

If I found an appropriate partner, I would not care what their relationship to me was. She could be my sister, any color, hell, she could be from Mars as far as I'm concerned. God doesn't care either. He has only one rule that applies here:

Love her but don't put her before God in your life.

In more than half of the US states you can marry your first cousin, like you can in Canada, most of Europe, all of South America, Australia, New Zealand, etc. In fact it is quicker to list the places where you can't - China and Taiwan, North Korea, South Korea, and in less than half of the United States.

I quite liked a cousin when I was around 20 - she was very attractive, and we could have had a relationship, but I think that neither of us fancied having our uncles and aunts as in-laws. Not out of principle, let me make clear, but because of the aunts/uncles/parents in question.
