In brief: It depends!
It depends on which congenital heart defects he has, what surgeries have been done to repair them, and what his current cardiac status is now.
I recommend having your fiance schedule an appointment with his cardiologist, so that you can ask his cardiologist these questions.

In brief: Depends
This depends on what the congenital heart defect is, the severity of the defect, was it operated on early in life, does he need heart meds or further surgery.
