** Also, due to the fact that the Baratheons are descended from Aegon the Conqueror's bastard half-brother, the bride and groom in any Targaryen-Baratheon marriage will at the very least be distant cousins (one case was actually an aunt-nephew marriage, since the groom's grandmother remarried to a Baratheon and had a daughter). The same is true for any marriage between the Targaryens and Martells after the reign of Daeron II.

Romantic/sexual relationships between cousins are a phenomenon that has been more accepted in some cultures and eras than others. [[ValuesDissonance A great many cultures today accept it,]] including a majority of the industrialized world. Marrying one's extended relatives (which is technically known as ''clan endogamy'') [[http://www.upi.com/Science_News/2013/03/18/Fossil-hints-at-human-inbreeding/UPI-89081363654130/ seems to have been common in human evolutionary history]], since hominids usually lived in small nomadic bands with few available sexual partners. At the other end of the spectrum, much of the modern U.S.A. considers cousin marriage completely taboo, so HilarityEnsues at the very mention of it. People from backwoods areas (especially the Appalachian Mountains) are often the [[AcceptableTargets preferred butt of many bad jokes]] as well as occasional bits of SelfDeprecation for the alleged prevalence of Kissing Cousins in their culture. Despite the taboo, cousin marriages are legal in about half the states in the U.S.A., though not as much in the backwoods areas and more in the modern industrialized states, the opposite of what one might expect from hearing all those jokes. Legal or not, these marriages are still not very common due to the lingering cultural taboo.

* Crawford Starrick and [[spoiler: Pearl Attaway]] are cousins as well as business partners and members of the Templar Order in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate''. Dialogue between them indicates they have a long history together; having apparently been childhood sweethearts, Crawford once asked [[spoiler: Pearl]] to marry him and was deeply disappointed when she refused his proposal, as well as being clearly grief-stricken after she is assassinated by Jacob Frye (as one of his minions [[ShootTheMessenger unfortunately learns]]).
