Insanity and Marriage

  • G. E. Mould

In giving advice concerning the marriage of a person who has had an attack of insanity or who belongs to a family with a hereditary predisposition to insanity, on what considerations should our opinions be based? Firstly, on the welfare of the individuals who are about to marry and of their families present and prospective. Secondly, on the welfare of society. Our advice might have far-reaching consequences if we were only agreed on common principles.
