Thank you for your email.

So one important thing to think about before taking any step is if you marry your cousin, how will your second marriage affect your wife and kids?
And the best person to judge and decide is yourself, if you think there will be a slight probability of your first marriage to break, it would be best not to opt for the second marriage. You have to take your wife and children’s emotions into consideration before taking any step so you are not answerable in the hereafter.
