marriage between a boy and his mother's brother's son is allowed.Well, it is still practiced among South Indians.

Since Kunti was adopted by Kuntibhoja (though she was biological daughter of Surasena, the father of Vasudeva), her gotra changed. Thus, marriage occurred between individuals belonging to different gotra and is in line with the gotra considerations during marriage.
