Dear Sir/Madam marrying half cousin is prohibited legally but you can still go ahead with arranged or Arya samaj marriage provided that no one including any of yours relatives/parents including both of you too file a case for dissolution of marriage on the ground of its being void. It is clarified that in future God forbid if any of you want to get the marriage nullified through court then the person filing for dissolution of marriage shall be liable to the prosecution for cheating fraud and criminal breach of trust. So I would advise you to go ahead with marriage. God bless you. You can send further queries for your satisfaction.
