ABSTRACT

Background: Consanguinity is the union between genetically related persons. It is more prevalent in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa. The offspring of consanguineous marriage are at greater risks for certain genetic diseases. Methodology: The study is a cross-sectional observational study with a self-administered questionnaire. It included 810 participants from 18 to 60 years of age from Al-Madinah, Saudi Arabia. Results: Our study reveals that 42.2% were against consanguineous marriage and 14.3% were in favor of it, the highest percentage of those against consanguineous marriage were post graduate participants. Conclusion: There is a negative correlation between education level and attitude toward consanguineous marriage. Increasing level of education decreases the attitude toward consanguineous marriage.

Keywords:
Consanguineous marriage, attitude toward consanguineous marriage, consanguineous marriage in KSA.
