Ultimately its up to the both of you so talk to her about it. Maybe she will say Yes.

If she is your cousin from maternal side there is no risk of hereditary diseases (if any in the family being carried to 3rd generation i.e your offspring.If the relationship is from paternal side there is a risk if she is your fathers brother's daughter.If she happened to be your father's sister's daughter it is safe .

Its okay in terms of being cousins, since you are not first cousins. But I would be more concerned about your traditional, non-western approach to marrying someone you really don't know. Good luck,

Yes - you can legally marry your 3rd cousin. There's no law against it, because you two are not closely related by blood.
If you and your 3rd cousin are just now beginning to "address"" each other, then you need to wait several more months before you even THINK about proposing to her. You don't know her well enough yet to know if you even WANT to marry her.

Well its not wrong or illegal in most countries. But should you not date and get to know your cousin a lot longer before you both plan on marrying?

Why would you marry someone you don’t even know?

This is legal in most parts but if you plan to reproduce you'll need to undergo some genetic testing/counseling first. The consanguinity of this relationship isn't horribly perilous in terms of potential chromosomal abnormalities but it's close enough that you'd want to weed out any latent problematic traits you might both share.
