JEREMY - Can first cousins get sealed in the temple. I know that they can legally get married in some states like California or Alaska, but what about being sealed in the temple? Is there doctrine, or church rullings against this?

JOEL - No restrictions on first cousins being sealed. My great great grandfather and grandmother were first cousins and they were sealed. If they can be legally married they can be legally sealed (provided of course the couple is a man and woman)
