In brief: It depends.
If you are a man or a woman you need genetic counseling to understand the risk of genetic transmission.
To avoid this risk, ivf+preimplantation genetic diagnosis is available for marfan syndrome. If you are a man or a woman then you need to be tested for various fertility factors just like any-one who's unable to conceive for 1y. Women need cardiac evaluation esp. For aortic root dilatation.
