Genetic Studies

Are humans going to have to get genetic studies in order to marry?

I know of no laws that stipulate two people must have genetic studies in order to obtain a license to marry. I have heard that some individuals are electing to obtain some genetic studies in an attempt to determine their risk of having offspring who will struggle in life due to genetic disorders. The individuals then have the option of risking it, using a sperm bank, adopting, fostering, or not having biological children at all. My experience has been that when two people “fall in love” and decide to marry or partner, they do not always even discuss ahead of time their position on having children or not, much less think of genetic testing.
