I have known this guy for almost all my life and I am madly in love with him. He is the love of my life and I can’t imagine being with anyone else.
We are both in the same church and as a lead up to the marriage, we were asked to do our genotype amongst other tests. Learning that we are both AS Genotype, we have been adviced by the church not to marry citing the sure possibility of having SS children.
We both believe that our love and faith can carry it and want to go ahead and marry. We, however, seem to be the only ones on this journey. Please help.
Dear Sandra, thanks for your letter
There is a good reason why both of you seem to be the only ones on this journey. I have here, an article here that explains a whole lot about genotypes especially about the AS and SS genotype and why people such as AS genotype who are carriers of the SS genotype shouldn’t plan to have children.
The issue here isn’t about not marrying. It is about the high possibility of having a child with SS Genotype. Trust me, no matter how much you love each other, that marriage would face severe trials.
They say that Love always finds a way. If you guys are planning to have a child, my advice is to not get married. This is not just about you but what I consider a selfish act of bringing to this world someone who would have to bear so much punishment for life.
Having once dated someone with the SS genotype, also having had several SS Genotype who are friends as well as friends with SS genotype kids. It is not fun at all especially having to be at their burial so young in life. Think beyond yourself and your guy. Think about the unborn child.
Yes, there are medical advances available today that helps you select the child’s genotype but they come at both a moral and financial price.
On the other hand, you and your husband can choose to adopt a child or have children fertilised from the egg or sperm of a proven AA genotype donor. This would surely bypass the issues around the AS genotype but you must both know that this is what you want.
The bible lets us know that the same God that gives us miracles also gives us wisdom and He lets us know that wisdom is profitable to direct.
I do hope this helps.
