The First Presidency decides that there is no "rule in the church forbidding cousins to inter-marry" and that first cousins can have temple marriages if they present a civil license. General authorities such as Brigham Young, Willard Richards, Joseph F. Smith, and Abraham H. Cannon married their first cousins as legal or plural wives.
