There are in Greece, where there is no distinction between blood relatives and 
relatives by marriage. Siblings cannot marry siblings, unless they do so at 
the same time. (From what I've read, this loophole was developed by queen 
Amalia in the 19th century, so the rule used to be even stricter in older days.)
