    Scared for the future with my schizophrenic boyfriend

    Hi. So my boyfriend for nine months has schizophrenia. He told me about three weeks into our relationship. At that time, I hadn't really read much on the topic and even before he told me I didn't really know what schizophrenia really was.(I've heard about it but just didn't know the symptoms) and around that time he didn't really show much symptoms anyway so I decided that I'd stay with him because really, he was still the same person that I love.
    I really just want to know how it's going to be in the future with him. He's talked about marriage an stuff and starting a family... But I'm not sure. I'm worried because my dad has the bipolar disorder (I'm not sure if I carry the gene) and if my boyfriend and I have kids then... I mean I was lucky to have had the bipolar disorder skip over my sister and my but that means that's my future kids are more at risk. And then I'm adding schizophrenia to the mix... I'm just a little nervous, I guess. I love him so much and I honestly can't imagine the rest of my life without him, I'm just scared for the future.

    you are smart to be scared for the future......
    I definitely wouldn't have children with him, to do so would be asking for trouble.
