Abstract: Conventionally, consanguineous unions are preferred in the marriage market of Pakistan. Nearly half of all marriages in the country are consanguineous, with 29 and 21 percent of women marrying first cousins on their father’s and mother’s sides, respectively (NIPS, 2018). Preference for consanguineous marriages is inextricably linked to several cultural and socio-structural aspects in a society.
