    I know but saying "sister" sounded like a potential incest insult so I used cousin instead... but you got the point, right?

    I looked it up a minute ago... it said less than 10% involve cousins... that seems high but apparently that is the stat.

    I think if a) include outside US, or b) includes far beyond first cousins alone. Several states prohibit first cousins from legally marrying, so overall for US cannot be that high.

    But that would mean if it was 10% for all of the US, about half the states would average out to about 20% of their married couples being first cousins for that 10% to be accurate (unless the ones that allow it are all the most populous states and those not allowing it, the least, or at least states with most married people vice least making up that number (not exact at all, just estimating here). I just dont think 10% can be anywhere close to correct for the US and first cousins being married.

    And I'll notice you don't defend their exclusion or the gays preferential inclusion.

    Like I said, "Now its about helping gays feel better about their homosexuality." Extending marriage to just any two consenting adults would eliminate the preferential treatment for gays.
