Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Romantic/sexual relationships between cousins (meaning, generally, first cousins) are a phenomenon that has been more accepted in some cultures and eras than others. 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) 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 Hilarity Ensues at the very mention of it. People from backwoods areas (especially the Appalachian Mountains) are often the preferred butt of many bad jokes as well as occasional bits of Self-Deprecation for the alleged prevalence of Kissing Cousins in their culture.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })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. All states permit marriages between second and third cousins, but even these are looked at funny. In the UK, first cousin marriage is unusual and would be regarded as rather odd, but not with the same severity as the US. Second cousin marriages and beyond would be seen as unremarkable. In several other western countries, specially the ones that are majoritarily catholic, first cousins marriages were common and usually are not considered a taboo, although starting to become more looked down upon in the modern age due to globalazation and the consequent import of US culture, although they are still quite common in rural areas.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Expect some strong Values Dissonance between the media from the US and other countries, and between certain modern works and works from the nineteenth century and earlier, when the taboo was sometimes non-existent or even inverted. Full scholarly debate on why some cultures would forbid cousins — or even specific types of cousins — to marry while others ignore — or even encourage — it rages on and lies beyond the scope of this wiki.
According to both Oxford and Merriam-Webster's Dictionaries, the original definition of kissing cousins was simply a relative known well enough to be given a kiss in greeting, although this meaning has long since fallen by the wayside.
Check out Incest Is Relative for more closely related tropes.
NOTE: This trope is for cases of actual relationships between cousins. Cousincestuous subtext goes in Incest Subtext.

Miyuki Takamachi of Triangle Heart 3: Sweet Songs Forever. Both her status as Kyouya's cousin and potential love interest may or may not still be present in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, as one shot in the first season showed signs of her getting jealous when she heard that Kyouya was going to visit his girlfriend, Shinobu.

Toyed with in the anime. It seemed that Tybalt would become a Romantic False Lead for Juliet, but we soon see hat he's got no real romantic interest on her and settles on being her Big Brother Mentor instead. And Aloof Big Brother to Romeo, since in this version he double as Juliet's relative and as Lord Montague's Heroic Bastard. (His mother was a high-ranked Capulet lady, who was seduced by Laertes and later fell victim to Death by Childbirth).

Fumi from Sweet Blue Flowers has an unrequited crush on her cousin Chizu. She notes that, even if Chizu wasn't engaged, it wouldn't work out between them because they're cousins and because Chizu is a girl.
It's worth mentioning too that Fumi and Chizu actually had a sexual relationship, with Chizu's engagement to a man signalling their break-up. It's later implied by Chizu to have not been so unrequited after all, as she cries to Fumi about how "We're girls... and cousins... so I can't be that kind of girl."

Detective Conan:
In one of the earlier cases, the killer's motive for killing his grandfather, etc. was because he fell in love with his cousin, and the older man forbids them from marrying. The killer's parents were also cousins, and the patriarch reluctantly agreed to their marriage.
The series had already hinted that Mary Sera may or may not be Elena Miyano's sister, but Word of God stated during an interview in Singapore that Shuuichi Akai and Akemi Miyano were indeed cousins. Whether they were aware of that fact isn't clear, but they were dating before the latter died.

Bleach: Pure-blood Quincies are expected to accept endogamous Arranged Marriages to prevent contamination of bloodlines even if it means marrying cousins. The Ishida matriarch engaged her son Ryuuken to his cousin when they were both teenagers. Ryuuken and Masaki cared about each other as family but were reluctant to marry because they knew they were romantically ill-matched. Not only was Ryuuken not Masaki's type, but he was also more attached to Kanae than he was allowed to be.

In The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien:
The Elf Maeglin was in love with his first cousin Idril Celebrindal, who is squicked by this, for "the Eldar wedded not with kin so near, nor ever before had any desired to do so." Also, Ar-Pharazôn, the last King of Númenor, married his first cousin, Tar-Míriel, against her will. It is claimed Numenorean laws prohibited any marriage closer than second cousins.
Invoked with Maedhros and Fingon. To complicate things, they both were males — and their fathers were not unlike Cain and Abel.
Aragorn and Arwen are first cousins sixty-seven and seventy-four times removed, as Arwen's uncle also happens to be an ancestor of Aragorn's many, many generations up the tree. Here's a family tree to help you keep it all straight.
Galadriel and Celeborn are second cousins — Galadriel's maternal grandfather and Celeborn's paternal grandfather were brothers.
Sam Gamgee and his wife Rosie Cotton are third cousins. Sam's great-grandmother Rowan was the older sister of Rosie's great-grandmother Rose.
Merry Brandybuck's parents Saradoc and Esmeralda are second cousins. Saradoc's grandmother Mirabella and Esmeralda's grandfather Hildigrim were siblings (both children of Gerontius Took and Adamanta Chubb). Merry marries his third cousin Estella Bolger, who is the great-granddaughter of Hildibrand Took, another of Gerontius and Adamanta's many children.

Masahiko and Shion from Family Compo are cousins and there's often a sense attraction between the two. The manga starts with Masahiko saying Shion is cute before he learns she's his cousin. Oddly the series keeps on swaying between Masahiko being Sora's and Yukari's parent figures, and likewise whether Shion and Masahiko are Like Brother and Sister or are attracted to one another.

Crawford Starrick and Pearl Attaway are cousins as well as business partners and members of the Templar Order in Assassin's Creed: Syndicate. Dialogue between them indicates they have a long history together; having apparently been childhood sweethearts, Crawford once asked 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 unfortunately learns).

While he's joking for the most part, Umineko: When They Cry's Battler Ushiromiya is not averse to playing grab-ass with his first cousin Jessica. As for more serious cousin-cousin relationships, the second half of the story reveals that Sayo Yasuda (who is implied and later confirmed to be Shannon, Kanon, and Beatrice) is involved with as many as three of his/her cousins. Who are also his/her niece/nephews (since Kinzō is both Sayo's father and grandfather). As it turns out, this is a large part of Sayo's issues, since finding out that s/he's actually related to his/her love interests makes him/her think of him/herself as disgusting and no better than Kinzo.

The Simpsons:
Apparently the motivation for the founding of Shelbyville was a disagreement between Jebediah Springfield and Shelbyville Manhattan over whether to legalize cousin marriage. At one point Bart escapes a bunch of Shelbyville kids by pointing and shouting "Look! Somebody's attractive cousin!"
Luann, Kirk and Milhouse all look so similar that Bart once asked Luann and Kirk if they are siblings. In the season 26 episode "Let's Go Fly a Coot", Milhouse tells Bart that his parents are actually cousins. They were born in Shelbyville and this follows Shelbyville custom, as the town was founded by early dissenting Springfielders who wanted to inbreed.

In Ceres, Celestial Legend, Kagami claims that there's been a lot of this in the Mikage family line, although it's worth mentioning the context seriously calls his credibility into question: he's trying to provoke Ceres into emerging from his cousin Aya by coming on to her, taunting her with this claim, and attempting (or at least pretending to attempt) to rape her.

In the spin-off series Rock Lee's Springtime of Youth, Neji is implied to have more than just familial affection for Hinata, because there is a scene where he imagines the story of Romeo and Juliet, in which he casts himself as Romeo and Hinata as Juliet. In his fantasy, they're called Nejio and Hinaette and look at one another with sparkles in their eyes, before they run towards each other and embrace lovingly. In the same series, he gets so angry when he hears about Hinata trying to date Naruto, that he attacks Hinata in fury, and it's not just the big brother instinct anymore, but plain jealousy. Bear in mind that their fathers were identical twins, meaning that Neji and Hinata share 25% of their genes (meaning they are genetic half-siblings), as opposed to the 12.5% that would normally be the case for first cousins.
There is also chapter 20, where Neji gets a severe nosebleed when he hears about Hinata's breasts getting even bigger than they already were.
Lee's comments about how freakishly similar all the Hyugas look to each other, even by family standards, might also be hinting at just how close the Hyugas are.
Neji also acts like a pervert towards the female characters in the Road To Ninja alternate universe movie, including Hinata. He acts like this especially towards Hinata.
In canon, Neji remarked to his father that Hinata was cute when they first met as children.

In X-Wing Rogue Squadron, Plourr Illo was engaged to her cousin since childhood. In the arc where she returns to her homeworld and takes up the reins, she's shown resisting the idea of marrying him, but since he shows a number of her traits—lots of courage, love of fighting and freedom, disdain for tradition for tradition's sake and even being a fighter pilot like her—she warms up to him. It's never shown whether they actually get married at some point. And their being cousins never seemed to bother Plourr, it was only the "arranged marriage to an aristocrat she hadn't seen in 20 years" part that was a problem.

Naruto:
In the spin-off series Rock Lee's Springtime of Youth, Neji is implied to have more than just familial affection for Hinata, because there is a scene where he imagines the story of Romeo and Juliet, in which he casts himself as Romeo and Hinata as Juliet. In his fantasy, they're called Nejio and Hinaette and look at one another with sparkles in their eyes, before they run towards each other and embrace lovingly. In the same series, he gets so angry when he hears about Hinata trying to date Naruto, that he attacks Hinata in fury, and it's not just the big brother instinct anymore, but plain jealousy. Bear in mind that their fathers were identical twins, meaning that Neji and Hinata share 25% of their genes (meaning they are genetic half-siblings), as opposed to the 12.5% that would normally be the case for first cousins.
There is also chapter 20, where Neji gets a severe nosebleed when he hears about Hinata's breasts getting even bigger than they already were.
Lee's comments about how freakishly similar all the Hyugas look to each other, even by family standards, might also be hinting at just how close the Hyugas are.
Neji also acts like a pervert towards the female characters in the Road To Ninja alternate universe movie, including Hinata. He acts like this especially towards Hinata.
In canon, Neji remarked to his father that Hinata was cute when they first met as children.
Karin showed some interest in Naruto at one point. Consider the fact that they're both from the Uzumaki clan. Her attraction to Sasuke is also this to a lesser degree, since the Uzumaki and Uchiha are genetically related, however distantly.
The First Hokage, Hashirama Senju might do this when he married Mito Uzumaki, as the Uzumaki are an offshoot of the Senju. Such practice is not unusual; the two clans tend to trade marriage partners to maintain their ancestral connection. On top of that, the arrangement allowed Hashirama to keep an eye on Kurama, who was sealed within Mito. However, their exact relatedness is not stated.
Then, of course, the final arc reveals that the Hyuga are related to the Senju, Uzumaki, and Uchiha. Naruto ends up marrying Hinata. Though since their (known) most recent common ancestor lived hundreds of years ago, it doesn't pose much of a problem.

A central part of the plot in One Hundred Years of Solitude is the fact that the founders of the Buendía clan were cousins, and therefore they feared the family would sooner or later breed monsters if they ever in-bred from that point on. Despite all efforts, it happens anyway.

The Kharkanas Trilogy:
Hunn Raal's three cousins Serap, Risp and Sevegg seem devoted to him, and rumor has it that's because their loyalties are forged beneath the furs. They're second cousins, so it's legal, but still raises eyebrows.
Averted with Faror Hend and Spinnock Durav. They're first cousins, and Faror Hend's attraction to Spinnock is so obvious even her commander has to tell her to restrain herself, while Spinnock is completely clueless.

Also, from the same source as Lex Luthor stealing forty cakesnote That's as many as four tens.

In Harry Potter:
It's implied that purebloodism leads to frequent inbreeding. Arthur and Sirius explicitly state that all surviving pureblood wizards are related to some degree. Particularly after the wholesale slaughter of the second Death Eater war, there are simply so few purebloods left that those who still care about blood purity will have no alternative but to marry their cousins. Essentially if a pure or half-blood wizard marries someone who isn't Muggle-born, they're going to be related in some way — however distantly.
Sirius and Regulus Black's parents, Orion and Walburga, were second cousins.
Teddy Lupin and Victoire Weasley are fourth cousins once removed.
Molly Prewett and Arthur Weasley were third cousins through the Black family even before they married.
Harry and Ginny were strongly implied to be third cousins. The Black Family Tree includes as Dorea Black's husband Charlus Potter, whose information fit with him being James Potter's father, although this was jossed by the revelation in Pottermore of James's father as Fleamont Potter, whose exact relationship to Charlus remains unknown to date.
After Tonks's Patronus takes a canine form, Harry wonders if she had been in love with Sirius, her cousin once removed, since he was an Animagus who turned into a dog. It turned out to be Lupin, a werewolf, however.
The Gaunt family is described as "An ancient, in-bred, pure-blood wizarding family living in slovenly conditions in a shack in Little Hangleton." This is supposedly the main cause of poor Merope's "cross-eyed" appearance, and a streak of mental instability, such as with Morfin Gaunt. Although in this case, it's quite strongly implied that the Gaunts have gone much further than this trope to keep the bloodline "pure".

Arrested Development had a recurring storyline about George-Michael's crush on his cousin Maeby, who are revealed to be first cousins by adoption, then later revealed to be second cousins once removed by blood). Furthermore, when these feelings become mutual, Maeby tries to hide from them by dating a boy from her school, who turns out to also be her cousin. ( Though also first cousins by adoption, then revealed as second cousins once removed by blood.) This was mirrored in two storylines in the final season. The first saw Michael Bluth (played by Jason Bateman) thinking that a prostitute was his long-lost sister and hiring her to work at the company; she thought this was a Pretty Woman situation and started coming on to him. (The prostitute was played by Justine Bateman, who is Jason Bateman's real-life sister.) Then, in the third season finale it was revealed that Lindsay was adopted and was not actually Michael's biological sister. Upon finding out, she decided to act on a crush she had had for years. Then in the fifth season finale it was revealed that Lindsay is Lucille's half-sister. Additionally, Michael ended up going out with a woman who, unbeknownst to him, suffered from mental retardation as a result of her parents being cousins. It was a lot funnier and less creepy than this sounds.

Angel Densetsu subverts this in a Flashback arc that details how Kitano's parents met. Midori is involved with her cousin and childhood friend, Chuji, who has a one-sided rivalry/obsession with Ryuichiro and is most definitely Ax-Crazy. She insists that Chuji isn't evil, and asks Ryuichiro to defeat him in order to open his eyes. That really won't work, since he is evil now, and even considers Midori as just another easy girl. After he tells Ryuichiro this, Ryuichiro angrily lays him out in one attack, after being repeatedly struck with bronze knuckles and shrugging them off. Midori overhears and realizes the truth, culminating in the more heartwarming relationship between her and Ryuchiro.

The romance between Heather Mason and Vincent Cooper in Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. In the first Silent Hill film, Heather's biological mother Dahlia was the sister of the villain Christabella. In Revelation 3D, Vincent is the son of the villain Claudia, who is Christabella's sister. Therefore, Dahlia and Claudia are also probably sisters and Heather and Vincent are probably cousins. It could be possible, however, that Dahlia and Claudia could be unrelated if one was a maternal half-sibling (uterine) and the other was a paternal half-sibling (agnate/cosanguine). It's likely, however, that the writer of the second film missed the fact that Dahlia and Christabella were sisters in the first film. It's not the only Retcon.

In the Kushiel's Legacy series by Jacqueline Carey, distant royal cousins (his father is her great-grandfather's brother) Imriel and Sidonie fall for each other. Hard. However, their relatives (and the nation at large) aren't so much annoyed at the idea of relatives marrying so much as they are annoyed that Imriel's mother tried to take over the kingdom (twice, orchestrating an invasion the first time around) and at least some of the populace (mostly the ones still healing the scars from the invasion) thinks Imriel would do the same.

On King of the Hill, Bill goes back to his ancestral home and meets three beautiful women named Lily, Rose, and Violetta. All three come onto him, but Bill knows that one of them is his biological cousin while the others are his cousins' widows; he just doesn't know which is which. The three all sneak into his room at night and wind up in a cat-fight before Bill's other cousin (an almost-certainly-gay male) tells Bill it's Violetta to whom he's related. Bill winds up sleeping with both Lily and Rose.

The White Queen: As in Real Life, the marriages of George of Clarence and Isabel Neville, and later Richard of Gloucester and Anne Neville, are of first cousins once removed. Cecily Neville, the mother of George and Richard, is thus both the mother-in-law and paternal great-aunt of Isabel and Anne.

In The Big Bang Theory, Howard, while high from marijuana use (It Makes Sense in Context), admits he lost his virginity to his cousin Jeannie at his uncle's funeral. This admission ends up coming back to bite him at the end of the episode in the form of a Mundane Ghost Story.
Later, he is quick to point out that she was his second cousin.

An episode of Just Shoot Me! involved Nina being pursued by a handsome man who, for some unfathomable reason, she has no attraction to. When he mentions he is also from Colby, Kansas, they discover they are cousins. He's completely disgusted and flees, while Nina is relieved that she hasn't stopped being attracted to men.

It is possible to make Roy and Lilina from Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade cousins... by pairing Eliwood with the Pegasus Knight Fiora and Hector with either of Fiora's youngest sisters Florina or Farina in prequel Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. Since The Blazing Blade was not released yet at the time of The Binding Blade's own release (and the pairings involved exist among other possible pairings), the latter never makes any mention of this possibility.

Fire Emblem Fates allows the players to do something similar to Fire Emblem Awakening if they have the children of siblings marry. There are also two "set" pairs of cousins in the game, one of which can avert this or not, one of which plays it straight.
The first set are Asugi, the son of the ninja Saizo, and Midori, the daughter of Saizo's younger brother Kaze. However, while they can reach an S-support, in the localization it ends with them as Just Friends, making them either an aversion or a straight example depending on the version itself.
The second set are the Male Avatar and his Implied Love Interest Azura—their mothers Mikoto and Arete were sisters. The twist is they don't know they're cousins, and they don't find out until quite late in the Golden Path (and note, only the Golden Path, meaning in the other two they never find out). Even after they learn the truth, though, their S-support is explicitly romantic, making them the straight example. Of course, if they don't marry each other, it's possible for their respective children, who would be second cousins, to marry each other. And if the Avatar marries any of Azura's children, he/she'll end up marrying his/her first cousin once removed.
It's also possible to pull off other couples like this depending on how the player pairs up the royal sisters. If Hinoka, Sakura, Camilla, or Elise marry any of the men who have daughters, the player can then hook these second-gen girls up with Shiro or Kiragi (for Hinoka and Sakura), or Siegbert or Forrest (for Camilla and Elise). For example, a Caeldori mothered by Hinoka is still perfectly capable of marrying her cousin Shiro.

In A Brother's Price, Jerin Whistler and the Princess Rennsellaer find, after downgrading his virginity status to technical levels, that they share great-great-grandmothers making them third cousins. Ren declares that it is distant enough for the relation to be fine and, indeed, that's how it's seen.
One of Ren's sisters would rather marry Cullen Moorland, but his mothers were sisters to their father; they are seen as full cousins, and with birth defects and inbreeding being major concerns in this world, especially among the nobility with its fears of being polluted by common blood, she is voted out (her sisters do concede that Cullen would otherwise be a good husband).
Eldie Porter is revealed to be the child of people who are genetically full cousins, but socially considered to be siblings. She's healthy—the onus is on her parents for breaking taboo like that. It should be noted that in this world men are very rare, and a man marries every sister in a family; the sisters themselves are born of several different mothers.

In Tanya Huff's The Enchantment Emporium Gales, a clan of witches usually (though not always) marry their cousins to keep from diluting the magic inherent in their genes and to keep said magic secret. Furthermore because there are far more more female Gales than male the boys usually "make the rounds" of their age group cousins before settling down. This imbalance between the sexes also leads to a lot of "close" relationships between the Gale girls. One of these, between main character Alysha and her cousin Charlie is particularly focused on in the book.

The Nanny had an episode titled "Kissing Cousins" where Fran starts to date a Jewish doctor Bob (played by Jon Stewart) who she thinks is perfect for her. They then meet up at a wedding in their temple, where Fran's mom declares, "Oh, let me get a picture of you and your cousin!" This makes them squick and they stop dating; however, it is mentioned again in later episodes.

Sword Art Online has a complicated case. Suguha Kirigaya wrestled with feelings for her older brother Kazuto, then when he became trapped in a VR game, her mother revealed that he was actually her cousin, adopted as an infant after his own family died in a traffic accident - him discovering that fact on his own led to him distancing himself from his adopted family. Suguha was overjoyed when Kazuto finally came out of his coma, less so when he revealed he'd found a girlfriend while stuck in the video game, and since Suguha knew that her feelings for him were unhealthy and unrequited, she tried to find a safer target for her affections, like this "Kirito" guy she met online one night in another VR game. Then Suguha found out Kirito and Kazuto were one and the same, meaning she'd fallen in love with her cousin twice over, which resulted in a brief Heroic BSoD.

The Phineas and Ferb fandom has a fairly large following for a pair of Original Characters named Marie Flynn (daughter of Phineas and Isabella) and Thomas Fletcher (son of Ferb and Vanessa), with the latter having a crush on the former. ("Isn't she your cousin?" "Step-cousin." Of course, even that falls apart in Alternate Universes where Phineas and Vanessa are half-siblings.) All in all though, Thomarie is pretty cute... even if Marie is as oblivious as her father.

Elisabeth: like in Real Life, Franz Joseph is expected to marry his cousin Helene, only to fall in love with Helene's sister Elisabeth. It's mentioned that they're cousins, but that isn't treated as the reason their marriage ended as badly as it did.

It should be noted that in The Sims 2 and The Sims 3, the game does not even allow the option for first cousins to be married. (A certain cheat will allow them to have offspring if the player so chooses). However, more distantly related Sims have the ability to seek romantic interactions with one another (probably because the family tree in the game does not recognize first cousins once removed and beyond, or great-grandparents for that matter).

Other than gods, the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series has Sam being betrothed to Amir, who is explicitly stated to be a relative on the mortal side. They are both descended from the Real Life 10th-century traveler Ahmad ibn Fadlan, but whether there are closer shared ancestors is unknown. Cousin marriage (or at least marriage between close families) is actually a common practice in the Arab world, not only to strengthen alliances (the Arabs being traditionally a clannish society) but also to keep inheritance in-family. But it’s still pretty squicky to have a Mansfield Park style of relationship in a kid’s book. Especially when the Satellite Love Interest had barely any relevance to the plot and could’ve been cut.

30 Rock has this when Liz Lemon meets a guy that seems perfect for her. At least, until they go back to his place and she notices a picture of her great aunt. They do the math and figure they are third cousins (i.e. sharing a great-great-grandparent). There's a discussion on how closely related they could be without it being creepy. He says fifth cousins. She says never.

The Lion King:
In The Lion King, Fridge Logic dictates that Simba and Nala must be either cousins or half-siblings because Scar and Mufasa are the only adult male lions in the pride. This is later defied in The Lion Guard where it's shown that Nala's dad is a random, unknown lion.
The Lion King II: Simba's Pride defies this by specifically mentioning twice that Scar is not Kovu's father, though fans still speculate. Kovu was meant to be Scar's son but then they noticed that'd make Kiara and Kovu cousins once removed. Of course, this just raises the question of who Kovu's real father is, or why he looks so much like Scar.

In The Elder Scrolls series, the Altmer (High Elves) have a very endogamous society, believing that they can trace their ancestry back through the Aldmer, to the Ehlnofey, and through them, even to the et'Ada who created the mortal world. As such, they intermarry and heavily restrict visitors to their homeland to keep their genetics pure, to the point where they even cull children with "undesirable" traits. While their pure bloodline gives them highest nautral magical aptitude of any race, it is theorized that the innate weakness to magicka they suffer is a result of this inbreeding.

In Antigone, the eponymous character is engaged to her cousin Haemon. Haemon's father Creon and Antigone's mother Jocasta are brother and sister. It's worth mentioning that he is also her first cousin once removed since Antigone's father is a son of Jocasta's. Coming from that family, marrying a cousin must've seemed positively conservative.

It's been mentioned in a Code Geass Sound Episode that Suzaku Kururugi was engaged to his cousin Kaguya Sumeragi when they were children.

The Bible:
In The Book of Tobit, it's not clear exactly how closely Tobias and Sarah are related, but their marriage is not only allowed but considered obligatory.
Due to the nomadic, tribal lifestyles of the ancient Israelites, this is true throughout the Bible. Jacob married TWO of his cousins, the sisters Rachel and Leah, and also fathered children by their handmaidens.
Also, because in the list of relatives and other people an Israelite man is not allowed to have sexual relations with, "cousin" is conspicuously absent.

Several preexisting relationships in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War's 2nd generation take on this form, and by selective pairing of characters in the first generation it is possible to make a vast number of such pairings. Two particularly noteworthy examples in the second generation are the predestined couples of Lana/Faval and Lester/Patty. Because their mothers Aideen and Briggid were identical twins, Intelligent Systems pulled off the impressive feat of doing this and Brother–Sister Incest at the same time.

In the 1993 film, Colin wants to marry his cousin Mary when they grow up so that they can always be together. Mary is amused but uninterested. Colin's response is a jealous loathing of Dickon, the servant boy who helps them in the titular garden, with whom he suspects Mary of falling in love. Their mothers are stated to be identical twins, thus making this even iffier genetically, since the offspring of identical twins are genetic half-siblings (assuming the other parents involved to not also be identical and to be two different people).

In Jade Empire, it's revealed that Dawn Star is the long-lost daughter of Sun Li, the brother of the Emperor. As a result, if a male protagonist forms a ménage à trois with the Princess Silk Fox and Dawn Star, the two ladies are in this kind of relationship.

Game of Thrones:
In Season 2, while Jaime is captured by the Starks, Cersei ends up sleeping with her cousin Lancel because, according to the books, he physically resembles a young Jaime. While cousin relationships are not uncommon in Westeros, this establishes Cersei's disturbing habit of shaking the family tree for a bed partner.
Also, like in the books, Tywin Lannister married his cousin Joanna, who died giving birth to Tyrion. The practical result is that her surname was already "Lannister" even before she married Tywin. In part, this also informs how much of a hypocrite Tywin is. He plans to force all three of his children to marry against their will to secure political alliances, demanding that they put the good of the family above their own personal happiness. Problem is, Tywin himself married for love — marrying a first cousin meant he didn't secure a marriage alliance with another powerful Great House.
Sansa's maternal aunt, Lysa Arryn tells her right after accusing her of sleeping with Littlefinger, that she can marry her son, Robin.
Daenerys is actually Jon's biological aunt, but the two are the same age so when they get together it's similar to this. Things are further complicated by the fact that neither knew about their blood relationship at the time.
When Jon finds out, he's disturbed and conflicted by the fact. He reveals their relationship to Daenerys, but she's less concerned about the incest than the fact that Jon has a better claim to the Iron Throne than her. Jon's father Rhaegar (Daenerys's much older brother) was the heir to the throne, and any of his legitimate children would come before her in the line of succession, thus threatening Daenerys's claim. Understandably, she's a bit suspicious regarding Jon's revelation as a result.

The Lion King II: Simba's Pride defies this by specifically mentioning twice that Scar is not Kovu's father, though fans still speculate. Kovu was meant to be Scar's son but then they noticed that'd make Kiara and Kovu cousins once removed. Of course, this just raises the question of who Kovu's real father is, or why he looks so much like Scar.

In the young adult book How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff, teenage cousins Daisy and Edmond fall passionately in love. Daisy wonders uneasily for a while "if that's the feeling your supposed to have when your cousin touches a perfectly innocent part of your anatomy that's even fully clothed". By the middle of the book, she doesn't care. The book treats their romance sympathetically.

In Sense and Sensibility, Colonel Brandon's first love was his cousin Eliza Williams. They planned to elope, but his father stopped them and forced Eliza to marry Colonel Brandon's older brother. In the present, Eliza's namesake daughter (and Brandon's ward) is commonly believed to be Brandon's natural daughter.

In Rose in Bloom, the only people that the heroine Rose even considers marrying are three of her seven male cousins: Archie (who falls for Rose's lady-in-waiting Phebe), Charlie "the Handsome," and Mackenzie, aka Mac. Rose's guardian, Uncle Alec, explicitly says that he does not approve of cousins marrying, but that he can't think of a better possible match for her; meanwhile her aunt Clara, Charlie's mother - overheard and tactlessly quoted by yet another cousin - holds that Rose should marry one of them "to keep the money in the family." After Charlie dies, Rose falls for Mac and marries him, while Archie and Phebe finally overcome the family veto to their relationship. As a bonus, Archie's 12-year-old brother Jamie gives Rose a love declaration at some point, which she rejects not because he's her cousin, but because she sees him as Just a Kid.

In Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy, Jude and his cousin Sue fall in love. It's the reason they resist their attraction in the first place which causes so many problems down the line.

In The Secret Life of Punzie, Rapunzel and Anna are cousins, but are very much in a sexual relationship. This is often glossed over as not only is cousin-incest considered less risque than between siblings, but because they are both women and therefor the stigma is less justified.

Child of the Storm touches on this a couple of times in regards to Harry and Jean Grey, his second cousin on his mother's side, who's about two and a half years older than he is. The author, who's British and thus as mentioned in the trope description, less inherently fazed by such a relationship, included her as one of the possible girls that Harry might end up dating in a poll to see what the fans would like (and, naturally, would Take a Third Option). When they meet, the two are immediately drawn to each other and are revealed to have a psychic connection that is theorised to possibly even date back to the womb. However, on Jean's side, the relationship is entirely platonic (she sees him as the little brother that she never had) while Harry's attitude is a little more complicated. Emotionally, he wants a big sister type figure. However, he's a straight Hormone-Addled Teenager, and Jean is gorgeous. Ultimately, Harry settles on platonic, though he doesn't suddenly become blind to Jean's good looks (or Maddie's, for that matter), being rather embarrassed when he sees her in a skimpy bikini and trying not to stare.

Between Failures offers a rather touching scene in which Reggie, not generally the most likable character in the cast, tells the story of “his first time” for a club initiation. The occasion proves to be a family wedding, the girl a cousin; his story is discreet to the point of allusion, and he dismisses accusations of “lack of detail” with an aloof put-down.

Saki from Snow Sakura is a slight deconstruction. She and her cousin Yuugi fall in love but their school's vice-principal decides to butt in because their relationship isn't socially accepted.

Played with in The Hunger Games. The Capitol does not approve of Katniss's close friendship with Gale, seeing him as a potential rival to Peeta, so they claim the two are cousins. This is plausible since they both have black hair, olive skin, and gray eyes, as typical of people from the Seam. In the third book, President Coin asks Katniss if she wants Gale declared as her new lover, which would make them this trope in the public's eye. Katniss declines.

Downplayed in Fruits Basket; while the cursed members of the Sohma family occasionally refer to each other as "cousins" or "relatives" and some of them have romantic feelings for each other, it's often implied that they're only very distantly related or not related at all (none of their parents are mentioned as being related). The Sohmas are a clan of 150 members, not simply a large family. The current generation of cursed Sohmas likely only call each other "cousins" out of formality and kinship.

At the end of The Importance of Being Earnest, The Reveal that frees Jack/Ernest to marry Gwendolen also makes them first cousins. This isn't specifically addressed, but he does start referring to her mother as his aunt, so at least they're aware of it; Gwendolen's mother is rather chagrined to realize that, as Jack is the son of her own beloved sister, she really can't object to the marriage.

In Warrior Cats, seeing as they're semi-realistic cats, and they live in Clans that don't allow intermixing, this is kind of inevitable, and there are several such relationships like this:
Squirrelflight and her mate Brambleclaw are second cousins.
Hawkfrost and Pebbleshine are cousins.
Lilyheart and Snowbush are cousins.

In The Berserkers Bride, Hiccup and Snotlout were originally meant to marry (Snotlout thinking that she was useless while she thought of him as The Bully), only for her to instead marry Dagur to unite their tribes. After she visits Berk with Dagur and reveals that she is pregnant, Snotlout tries coming on to her (thinking that she's now attractive) and even almost tries raping her.

Dar and Kin in The Beastmaster. It's actually achieved through Fridge Logic; their relationship to each other is never noted at all in the film after the reveal that Dar is the son of Kin's uncle the King, and they don't see any problems in a romantic relationship by film's end.

The Secret Garden:
In the 1993 film, Colin wants to marry his cousin Mary when they grow up so that they can always be together. Mary is amused but uninterested. Colin's response is a jealous loathing of Dickon, the servant boy who helps them in the titular garden, with whom he suspects Mary of falling in love. Their mothers are stated to be identical twins, thus making this even iffier genetically, since the offspring of identical twins are genetic half-siblings (assuming the other parents involved to not also be identical and to be two different people).
In the 1987 Hallmark adaptation adult Colin (portrayed by a very young-looking Colin Firth) proposes to Mary at the end and she accepts. However, in this version, they are not related — Colin's father is an old friend of Mary's parents instead of being Mary's uncle.

Fire Emblem Awakening uses a love system very similar to that of Genealogy of the Holy War. Either Lucina or a Chrom-fathered Cynthia or Kjelle can potentially marry their paternal cross-cousin Owain while other cousin pairings can be set up with certain combinations of parents. The international release has the status screens of such a pairing Bowdlerized to read "Companion" instead of husband/wife, though. A female Morgan mothered by Lissa or Emmeryn can also marry her cousin Inigo or Brady.

War and Peace has this combined with Not Blood Siblings. Sonya is attracted to her cousin Nikolai, who was raised as her brother. Natasha, who is at the time a child, assures her that they can still get married since Nikolai is only her second cousin. As young adults, Sonya and Nikolai get engaged, but Nikolai later breaks it off (with Sonya's consent) after he falls in love with Princess Marya. When they in turn get married, Sonya acts as an Honorary Aunt to their children.

The Camp Half-Blood Series and its associated spin-off series:
Some couples in the franchise, particularly from the Greco-Roman series, are technically this, as their divine parents are part of a really complicated Tangled Family Tree. For example, the main couple, Percy and Annabeth, are first cousins once removed, since the former's father, Poseidon, is an uncle of the latter's mother, Athena. However, The Last Olympian handwaves this by stating that gods don't have DNA, so it isn't creepy for couples with different divine parents to have a relationship. Couples with the same godly parents, however, are creepy.
Other than gods, the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series has Sam being betrothed to Amir, who is explicitly stated to be a relative on the mortal side. They are both descended from the Real Life 10th-century traveler Ahmad ibn Fadlan, but whether there are closer shared ancestors is unknown. Cousin marriage (or at least marriage between close families) is actually a common practice in the Arab world, not only to strengthen alliances (the Arabs being traditionally a clannish society) but also to keep inheritance in-family. But it’s still pretty squicky to have a Mansfield Park style of relationship in a kid’s book. Especially when the Satellite Love Interest had barely any relevance to the plot and could’ve been cut.

In 1879, Cyrano and Roxanne from Cyrano de Bergerac are cousins. Although they don't actually end up together, their familial connection is never presented as squicky or an obstacle in their relationship. Given Catholic rules on consanguinity, this probably means 'cousin' was more a courtesy then genetic relationship.

When Hervé and Nicolas follow the gang to the factory in an episode of Code Lyoko, Odd and Aelita pretend to have sneaked out of school on a date, despite the fact that Aelita joined the school under the pretense of being Odd's first cousin. Note that it works as a perfect in-universe Fridge Brilliance: it was Fake-Out Make-Out, but Hervé and Nicolas probably reads it: "They are kissing? But... They are cousins! Oh... No wonder they are hiding." Notably, when Hervé report the fact to Sissi, she obviously doesn't believe him and finds the concept absurd.

Tybalt in Roméo et Juliette, de la Haine à l'Amour (though not the play it's based on) wishes this was the case with him and Juliet.
In most productions anyway. In Hungary it's less "he wishes his cousin returned his romantic love for her" and more "he's so obsessed with her that he thinks all men, including himself, are unworthy of her". There's still some weirdness going on there, though.
Toyed with in the anime. It seemed that Tybalt would become a Romantic False Lead for Juliet, but we soon see hat he's got no real romantic interest on her and settles on being her Big Brother Mentor instead. And Aloof Big Brother to Romeo, since in this version he double as Juliet's relative and as Lord Montague's Heroic Bastard. (His mother was a high-ranked Capulet lady, who was seduced by Laertes and later fell victim to Death by Childbirth).

On Downton Abbey, a major plot point is that the Earl of Grantham is without a direct heir, and so their very distant cousin Matthew is brought in as the only suitable candidate. It is hoped that the Earl's daughter Mary will become his future wife because their marrying would ensure that Mary could keep the house and fortune she would have inherited if she had been born a boy (especially since most of the money in the estate actually came from her American heiress mother, and it would be unfair for it to go to some distant relative of Lady Grantham's husband and bypass her daughter entirely). Nobody mentions that it's technically incest, and they eventually do fall in love. If you do the calculations, they're fourth cousins. Likewise, Mary had been betrothed to the previous heir (before he died in the Titanic sinking), who was her second cousin. And it's implied her sister Edith had a thing for him, too.
