Not really advice, but share your opinio

So my buddy and I were talking about one of our friends' gf. She has a chronic disease that runs in her family. My other friend is currently dating her and not sure if he wants to get serious because if he does get involved down the line(i.e. engaged/marriage) he's thinking he doesn't want to risk his childrens health.

My friend and I were split on the decision. What would you do?

It's a shitty thing to consider....but it definitely is something you'll need to consider! Let his heart decide.....if he truly loves a genetic case, so be it.

Does everyone in her family for sure get it? I can understand how tough that might be, the heart wants what the heart wants.

Damn that's a sucky situation. I don't know what I'd do. It would probably help if we knew the disease. Is it life threatening or just some sort of inconvenience or handicap?

I'd rather not get into the details( the web is a small place) I can say it's more along the lines a metabolic disease. It doesn't necessarily kill, but it can in the long run.

How old is your buddy Coldintake?

its tough, however its not like he was with her for a few years and marriage is inevitable. If he is currently dating her, it might be best to leave now before it gets to hard... I know that sounds dick, but this sounds life changing.

However, if they truly do love each other, nothing should stop them. I don't know what kind of disease you are talking about, so its tough to determine what he should do..

Will he catch the disease?
Is the disease harmful to her?
Will she most likely die at a younger age?
Does this disease eventually incapacite people?

Need more details...

yeah dude. I love her to death but we actually got in to a "disagreement" the other night about our future. I honestly think i may marry this girl and she mentioned taking kids to church and I was like ahhh I don't know. I guess it's worth it though if I want to be with her. What's a few hours a week right?

well i'll tell ya... my mother is still "catholic" however i can't remember the last time she came to church with me and my father... i haven't been in a while either, but growing up she never came

was never an issue

however my family isn't the typical "go kill yourself you are going to hell if you don't go to church every week" type... we are definitely more along the lines of a conservative catholic rather than your "irrational christian"

if your girlfriend respects you, and vice versus, i think she should be able to take the kids to church without going all gung ho on them about being a volunteer public preacher like the typical stereotypes

first thing you learn from god... love your neighbor as you love yourself... so a huge FVCK YOU from jonathan russo for the extremists that point the finger at athiests and people who are not catholic/christian/baptists... etc

see, all people who go to church aren't nuts

It's his call. If he's man enough to live with it or not.
And, Part of a solid marriage is being able to learn to live with the other - No matter what... til death.
Also, he (they - when married) can always Adopt.
