If 2 ppl, woman (156cm) and man163cm)marry, does this yield a possibility of dwarfism for their children or may result in children being shorter thn thm?

If 2 ppl, woman (156cm) and man163cm)marry, does this yield a possibility of dwarfism for their children or may result in children being shorter thn thm?

Not really dwarfism: That's a 5'1" woman and 5'4" man... Both shorter than average but in the normal range for people. "shorter than average" is not related to dwarfism, because dwarfism is usually due to a genetic problem. Without some type of defect, such normal heights should not be a factor in deciding to marry and have children, unless a parent would have some sort of psychological problem from having short kids. ...Read more
