Should I Marry My Cousin?

Ep 1/1

Tuesday 4 July

From 10.00am


Eighteen year-old Bradford-born Hiba Maroof faces a genuine moral dilemma: should she marry one of her cousins or go her own independent way?

First-cousin marriage has gone on within Hiba’s family for generations.

In this informative, authentic and deeply personal film, the BBC Three audience will get insight into one person’s complex dilemma, as Hiba finds out if it is possible and even sensible for her to desire such a close relative. We will follow Hiba as far as Pakistan where there are eligible cousins as she finally makes her decision - could she marry one of the family?

Should I Marry My Cousin? is part of BBC Three’s Sorry Not Sorry season, which started on Sunday 18 June on BBC Three’s website and across BBC Three’s iPlayer and YouTube channels.
