Description:

Now that it’s possible to identify the cause or susceptibility to some diseases, should couples undertake premarital genetic testing? Should partners inform prospective spouses about they are susceptible to a disease that may be transmitted to their children? If there is a risk, should couples take a genetically responsible decision with regard to their future spouse or about having children?
