Consanguity is usually a risk factor in many genetic and hereditary disorders like thalesemia etc. In your case though this is a distant relative there still exists some risks. The only way of determining this is through gene testing and analysis which is difficult. However you could have some genetic counselling done and look into in depth details of yours as well as your fiances family history in regards to health problems. All the best.
