Can biologically unrelated siblings from a blended family legally marry each other?

I’ve googled this and failed to find the answer.
Say you have a blended family where both parents have children from previous marriages. These children, therefore, are in no way biologically related to each other. Then, eventually, two of them wish to get married to each other.

My SO says that it’s not legal because they’re considered siblings under the law and even though they are biologically unrelated, “the law trumps biology”.
Is he right?
If he is, what do you think - SHOULD siblings be able to marry under these circumstances?
