.
The verb phrase is to be married to. With the noun, you have the option: She has a happy marriage with/to her first cousin.

Hi Conchita:

I wrote "with my cousin" and it was incorrect, but according Mister Micawber's explanation I can use "to or with" so, why my answer was wrong?

Because it is not the noun 'marriage' in the sentence; it is the adjective 'married'.

Now, wouldn't that be an unnatural/incestuous thing to do Mister Micawber ?
I mean, for a woman to be married to her first cousin :-)

Sorry, just stumbled across this and immediately thought there was something wrong with this sentence here, just couldn't tell what it was right away
Many thanks

You are revealing cultural bias, Cristina. Some societies permit it.
