It's not a good idea to go to family reunions to pick up chicks.

It is very dangerous to have a baby with a family member as It can many problems from the genes, severe mental disorders and problems with the way the body functions (organs and etc.). It has become legal to be able to get married and to have kids with your 2 nd cousin though

here in NC, first cousins can marry each other. no having a baby with a sibling might be a different situation.

Unless one or both of the cousins are mentally challenged the odds are the same as with 2 unrelated people. Although I believe Incest is illegal(Not 100% sure)

incest is not two cousins. incest is siblings or mother or father with child.

It's not incest. Incest is between siblings. It called inbreeding and it
is not recommended.

If one of them is a mentally challenged then chances are but if they don't have diseases they will have normal child.
