Does Sikh Code of Conduct permits Anand Karaj of the couple who happens to be cousins or even distant relatives? I have seen this amongst Punjabi Sikhs. Is this ethically correct?

From my experience, Sikhs will not marry those who are from the same village due to fears of incest. The Guru Granth Sahib does say things about lust and using common sense so in a way the Guru Granth Sahib is telling people to use common sense and avoid marriage with cousins and even distant relatives due to the risk of genetic disorders.
