Marriage of Cousins in TexasYes and no. The law was amended a few years ago to prohibit marriage of first cousins, and the application for a marriage license requires each applicant to mark "true" or "false" to a question asking if the applicants are cousins. But, a marriage resulting from fraud or mistake in the application is not void, so if you lie on the application, you can be prosecuted for perjury, but still, apparently, validly married, although there don't seem to be any court cases interpreting the statute. It is hard to believe that this was an intended result, so one would think that either the Texas legislature or the courts would do something to alter this outcome.
