Dear all,

I would like to rose my case also.

I want to marry a girl who falls in my family relations. My father(X) and her maternal grandfather (Nana)(Y) are cousin brothers.  X's father and Y's father were real brothers.

Can we get married according to the law ?

Please advice.

I have one Problem... that both 5th generation child can have marriage under hind act

Clearly, bride and groom are 'spindas'  of each-other from, at least, father's side of the bridegroom. And this marriage will be void ab initio -- therefore, their offspring will not be regarded as a 'legitimate' child. 

Moreso, they are both from the same Gotra or Parvara; scientifically speaking, progeny of such marriage-relationships might be physically or mentally malformed.
