Is it Incest to have a sexual relationship with your cousin's son?

I met a guy and did not know that we were related. I only found out yesterday. I'm very disappointed to say the least. We haven't slept together but we have very strong feelings for each other. Should we continue with the "relationship"?

Curious, the law says you can marry your cousin, so I’m sure it’s legal to have a sexual relationship. If you’re talking about having children with him, it becomes a bit more complicated because you are fairly closely related. The best would be to ask the geneticist as this is more his field of expertise than mine. Let me know as a new question if you have more questions (it won’t take so long again). Good luck.
