Would you date a person with a genetic disorder?
The resulting offspring would be more to have health problems, but not necessarily.
How important do you value a potential outcome, if at all?
Any input would be appreciated, as I never really had to consider this before.
I find myself falling for a person, but wouldn't want to put (any) children through something like that. (chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis, if anyone's curious).
Yeah I would date someone like that. Plus no kids mean riduclas amounts of money to spend on your relationship and you.
Or fuck if you really want screaming tea cup humans that bad just go adopt. There is a ton without parents at all and they would appreciate it.
I would want children, so if I was to go about this it would be with that knowledge of increased risk.
I'm perfectly healthy, but i have family members with conditions, and seeing what it does to them, i wouldn't want to pass it on.
The problem seems to be 2fold.
1. Chronic lymphocytic thyroiditus seems to be tolerable as long as you take medicine, and as such isn't really any different from high blood pressure or etc... I think.
2. It's not a strict inheratibility, just that it seems more likely to have something go wrong. Owing back to the parents, mine were perfectly "healthy" yet still produced children who weren't, so it's a small fear of mine.
