  • Yes, you can marry her since you are related to her in some way but in no way she is your first cousin and thus it is not going to cause any difficulty in your marriage. Since it is not a close relationship thus, you can marry her.

    Involve your parents and talk through the whole matter before getting married. Cultures and traditions differ from one caste to another. Thus, you need to sort out lots of things including the marriage between cousins topic before tying the knot.

  • The relation is very distant and there will not be any problem. There are instances where such girl and boy married together. Anyhow before deciding on the marriage get the blood group of both of you tested. Marrying a person having the same blood group is not advisable.
    Now take the opinion of the girl also. If she is also interested, your parents and her parents can discuss and arrange the marriage. If your parents' object or her parents object, you both people have to take a call and decide accordingly.
