Government mandated genetic tests cancel 60% of marriages last year…

What else do you need to say?

The government of Saudia Arabia mandated testing for genetic issues.

Here’s the link for screening … Link. Which states:

Limiting the spread of some genetic blood diseases: sickle-cell anemia (SCA) and thalassemia, and some infectious diseases: hepatitis B, C and AIDS/HIV.

I’m sure this can’t be the only thing … but over 165,000 couples last year in the Saudia Arabia decided not to get married.  Two blood born & 3 STI/STD’s account for all of that?  There has to be tests for other things in the gene pool causing this too, doesn’t there?
