Brief Answer:
No problem

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Yes, there is no major problem or genetic issues in the babies if people of two positive blood groups marry.
Very rarely, sometimes hemolytic disease of newborn can occur in babies of parents with different blood groups.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
