Although blood group incompatibilty is one of the major causes for concern among consanguinous marraiges i.e married to second or third degree relatives there are other potential problems which may arise such as genetic or chromosomal disorders;congenital anomalies etc..In your case since both you and cousin are Rhpositive i.e O+ve and B+ve there is no risk of problems arising out of blood group incompatibilty..However it is highly recommended that you do a premarital genetic counselling in any of the leading hospitals in your locality to check for any hidden chromosomal mutations which may accentuate to a possible genetic disorder in the offspring.Better to be safe then sorry.Hope this has answered your query satisfactorily.thankyou.
