Incest occurs in both Westeros and Essos.

Though the practice is overwhelmingly condemned in most regions. In places like Valyria it is considered common and even proper for Brother to wed Sister within families to keep the bloodline pure.

What defines incest depends on what part of the world you live in. Although Incest is considered an abomination in Westeros it does not seem to be considered incest by the Lords in the Seven Kingdoms to wed a first or second cousins.

Examples of this are Tywin Lannister who was wed to his first cousin Joanna Lannister [1] and Lord Jon Arryns second marriage was to his cousin, Rowena Arryn.[2]
