Sibling marriage in Southeast Asian cultures

What was (and is) - from cultural, social and religious perspective - the attitude in Southeast Asia regarding sibling marriages?
I noticed that many historical figures married a sister or a brother.
Like the Thai king Rama V who married 5 of his (half)sisters; the burmese kings Razadarit, Binnya E Law, Nyaungyan; the King of Laos Sisavang Vong, the cambodian prince Norodom Phangangam, etc
What about taking as consort the concubine of your father? The step-mother.
Was it accepted, normal, or tolerated?

Never heard about any Vietnam emperor marry anyone relates to him. Also never heard about incest marriage in Vietnam culture and history. I only know some guys who married his...adopted daughter. But he's also a rapist so I am not sure if it's acceptable or it's just that he's a pervert. Not sure about the minority ethnics thou. Well, at least I know an old daimyo who married his young niece so who know?
