How important is genetic diversity?

My mother and father are very far removed, my father being mostly Slavic/Eastern European, and my mother being mainly Celtic. My paternal grandparents are also very distant from each other, my paternal grandmother being Russian/Belarusian, and my paternal grandfather being Ukrainian and Turkish. However, it turns out that my maternal grandparents are third or fourth cousins, so I guess there is some inbreeding there. Realistically, what are the impacts of this?

You may develop a hunch back and mental retardation in the future.

It's a mixed bag. For an individual it can be good or bad. If both your parents don't share a propensity for negative genes, then you are good. In fact if they both share good traits, it can be good. However that said the odds of negative traits are also more likely to be expressed by two relatives.
On an evolutionary/groups of people over time scale, genetic diversity is good. As soon as a group becomes genetic really uniform, then they can all be wiped out in one go by the wrong disease. If they are genetic diverse, then even a devastating disease will always leave a few people alive who can repopulate.

You should not be concerned.

The "coefficient of inbreeding" determines the chance of passing on a given allele (gene pair from Mom & Dad) in uncorrupted/unmutated form to the child. In the child, the allele will be located in the same place in his/her genetic structure as well as the parents

If you were to have a child with your mom, there'd be around 25 % chance that a recessive trait you both have, could appear in the child. Many, but not all of these recessive disorders can be debilitating for the child later in life.
Adding a generation halves that. Your coefficient with your grandparents is half that (12.5%)

Your maternal grandparents had a coefficient of inbreeding of around 0.5-1% at most (first cousin pairs have a coefficient of 6.25%), meaning somewhere between 1:100 and 1:200 chance that your mom received a recessive or dangerous gene from her parents.
It also means THEY were MUCH less related than you are to them...


Most likely you won't feel the effects of your ancestors boning, there's only a very slight additional risk of having a defect or a "risky" gene carried over from your mom... but that doesn't necessarily meant that it'll turn out badly for you.

As long as you take precautions with your health and check up on a few hereditary problems (eg. osteoporosis, heart problems, cancer), you may simply be able to prevent them before they come up.

My mom and dad might have been so sexually boring that she had an eggcell for a marsman and he had a spermcell for a marswoman.

I don't really like physical contact and fluid exchange and I see it as a form of degeneracy, too many relationships are based and ruined just because of sex, as if it were the only thing that matters. Call me Catholic, Puritan or whatever but this is how I feel.
