Marriage between cousins and genetic screening

Question

Is it permissible to marry a cousin and is it worthwhile doing medically today?

Response

It is allowed.

Medically, one should do genetic screening and and check your genetic tree to make sure the couple match genetically and there is no worry that, G-d forbid, sick children will be born.

Sincerely,
