Tourette and Marriage
Hi Brandie, and welcome to our discussion board.
You know, I have had TS from childhood (finally diagnosed last year, at the age of 51). I've been married for 26 years, and have five children (four daughters and one son), and not a single one of my kids has inherited the Tourette Syndrome! That shows you that even though TS is hereditary, you don't necessarily pass it on to any of your kids (even though it is possible it will show up in a grandchild). So, personally, I find it sad that your husband doesn't want children. Besides, even if he does pass it on, TS is not terminal and you can usually live with it without too many problems.
Your husband might want to try behaviour modification, to learn to redirect tics to doing something else when they interfere with what he is doing. I haven't succeded with this with eye blinking (even though I can stop from blinking so fast that I can't drive), but I can substitute a tic that interferes with driving, for instance, with another one at least for several hours.
