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.
