Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Did you notice that I did not mention genetic disorders, simply the risks to mental stability?

Risks of genetic disorders in unions between relatives, though not inexistent, tend to be overplayed indeed. It's the emotional ones that I feel are underplayed.

Now to answer your question is difficult. If you have a known severe disorder, should your partner test for it before marrying? I would hope that he would, but am not sure that the law should interfere.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
