Cousins legitimately get married in the U.S

A couple of first-cousins who fell head-over-heels in adoration voyaged several miles from Utah to Colorado to get hitched. Michael Lee and his nearby relative Angie Lee went from their home in Eagle Mountain, Utah to Colorado get married on Monday.

Their home state just permits cousins beyond 65 a years old get hitched, however makes a special case for couples matured 55 in the event that they can demonstrate they are fruitless.

Those tenets are gone for restricting the odds of kids being destined to first cousin guardians with hereditary anomalies.

First cousins share 12.5 percent of their DNA, making them up to twice as prone to have a crippled tyke as a man and lady who aren't firmly related.

Michael and Angie at last got together the previous winter following 10 years separated, and state they are never again stressed over dissatisfaction from their families.

Angie told ABC4: 'We said OK this is insane yet we're grown-ups now, we're single presently, we're simply going to put it all on the line and who cares what our family considers.'

They are currently appealing to for Utah to change its 'out of date' laws with the goal that other first-cousin couples can get married. Those equivalent principles mean their marriage isn't viewed as legitimate in Utah.
