Yes you can. A first cousin once removed shares 16 percent of genes with you on average and there is still a larger chance of having a child say with cystic fibrosis that having a child with an unrelated person. So inbreeding is to be avoided if possible.   It may be that different parts of the world have different laws on cousin relationships.   Pedigree animals are inbred to fix a characteristic and to keep it fixed further inbreeding is adhered to.  All pedigree animals have problems caused by their incestuous conceptions. It is healthier to have offspring with unrelated partners.
What the f$%@# is wrong with people I don't care how many times removed  your dinner plate is isn't it right back when your hungry take that up with the big guy when you c him or just keep it to urselves  people should actully b embarassed to ask such question but if you do then happy 4v you

Yes you can, in many places you can marry your first cousin. However, you should track down all inherited problems and calculate the chances of having offspring with problems, as the more related you are, the more chances you have to increase any given trait.
