The fuller prohibition has come partly from a desire to keep as far as possible away from something that is spoken of with such serious warning in scripture. As our society has become more numerous and diverse, it has become more repulsive to us to marry close to family. Cousins usually share a common set of grandparents (though it can be only one grandparent) and one-half of the genetic pool.
It has also become a joke to put down those who were considered to be from the sticks--that is, rural folks who did not know any better. Second cousins usually share a common set of great-grandparents and one-fourth of the genetic pool.

Now, there may be other reasons that this arrangement is bad.
