It could increase the chances depending on what particular disease they have, find out what it is exactly and do some research. For me this would not prevent me from having children, I figure that some people are just meant to be handicapped, and if it ends up being one of my kids in the future then I think I would love them just as much. My step-brother is mentally handicapped and there is no where our family would be even close to complete without him. But you have to do what you think is right for you. Like I said find out what it is and do some research. After that if you find out it is genetic have yourself and your SO tested for the gene by the doctor if you are still concerned.
