    Is there still stigma with 2nd and 3rd cousin marriages?

    Salam,

    If you are a 2nd generation Western Muslim, do you think it is preferable to marry someone from a different ethnic group to you (e.g. this could be another Western Muslim? Are Western Muslims generally comfortable with marrying their 2nd or 3rd cousin?

    I heard that it is better to marry within your ethnic group but not your first cousin. This is because if you marry outside your ethnic group and if one day one of your offspring ever needed a bone marrow transplant, a donor match may be harder to find. So, my question is, would the ideal potential spouse to look out for be someone from within your own ethnic group but not a 1st cousin?

    Thanks,
