Can I get pregnant by my first cousin?
Actually, worldwide lots of 1st cousins get married. In America 24 states have laws against 1st cousins marrying though it is legal in the other 26 and the 24 states where it is illegal will recognise 1st cousin marriages performed in other states. While the rate of 1st cousin marriage in the states is 1 in 1000 couples, worldwide it is 20% and in some cultures it is as high as 80%. The incidence of birth defects is only slightly higher in 1st cousin couples than the general population. FDR, Albert Einstein, and Charles Darwin all married 1st cousins.
When I was a lad I was told that 2nd cousins were "kissing cousins" because you could marry them. The prohibition against marrying cousins seems to mainly be an American thing.
Yes you could get pregnant from your cousin. Disability...doubtful.
You have a 2%-4% chance of having a child with problems from someone not related. you have a 4% -6% chance of problems from your cousin. To put this in perspective a teenager that smokes has a 4-6% chance of having a child with problems. This guy that say's he learned this in biology....full of it.
Marrying your first cousin is legal in many, many countries. The United States is a country that is split with about 51% of the states not allowing first cousins to marry.
