Hallo Nikki
Interesting question! The reason for not marrying close family would to prevent inbreeding problems and if this is not the issue, there is no medical reason you can't marry. I also don't think there are any legal reason why you can not marry as I think you are far enough removed by family. Just confirm with a lawyer too.
