    Under the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 marriage between sapindas is prohibited.

    Under the Act sapindas are cousins down to 5th generation on the paternal side and down to 3rd generation on the mother's side. In counting generations the generation of cousins concerned is also included.

    Hence, as per law , your marriage will not be valid
