Americans have been so indoctrinated with this taboo about cousin marriages. But it only started about 150 years ago. States passed laws against laws against first cousin marriages. But I'm not sure England ever passed any laws against it although it became much less common.

In Kentucky, where I live, it's still considered taboo and it's illegal.

It would take some research to find out how cousin marriage customs changed over time in each European country.
