Marriages in Great Benin
Oten, Omo,

you wrote
"The other take, people might be able to marry within the same lineage that share similar family greetings. In Edo family tree, you have Omo-iwu, Eye, Ikhienkhien, Ogiomo, Abiena and Egbekekaen. Once you go pass Egbekakaen, you can marry. Point, marriage can happen within the same family lineage after the fifth generation. However, in cases where abominable relationships / marriages happens for example 3rd or 4th generation, one of the member is excommunicated from the family and the family ancestors and deities are appease."

With my understanding of Edo culture,
Two members of paternal family do not get married. relatives are allowed to cross the marriage path after the fifth generational gap is crossed only between Ovbie okpia and ovbie okhuo. but never from ovbie okpia to ovbie okpia due to the risk with DNA issues.
Marrying ovbie okpia to ovbie okhuo is simply allowed because the female genetic pattern has been missed with that of her husband and. while that of ovbie okpia eva always retains the same DNA thereby risking having a mentally challenged/disabled obspring.

Our ancestors were more scientist than we give them credit for.
Compare the number of disabled children we have in our community with those outside our community where cousins marry each other. You will realize what we have been protected from and thank our ancestors for it.

My two cents.

Tina.
