Cousins legally get married in the U.S
Two first cousins, Angie Lee and Michael Lee, who are based at the
United States have legally gotten married.
it was reported that the cousins who were denied the opportunity to get married and be who they wanted to be in Utah because of a state law, drove to an undisclosed site in Colorado to tie the knot Monday.
According to a report by KTVX Angie’s dad is the oldest of 12 children, while Michael’s mom is the 5th child in the same family.
According to Utah’s state law, marriages between first cousins are considered incestuous and therefore illegal, unless both are older than 65 — or, if both are older than 55 and either person is infertile.
However, the new couple said Utah’s law is out of date. “We said, ‘OK, this is crazy, but we’re adults now. We’re single now.
We’re just going to go for it, and who cares what our family thinks,’” Angie Lee told KTVX. Michael said the couple wants to get Utah’s law overturned.
