  1. If you're mating with somebody outside of your family who doesn't
  2. have this rare variant or rare allele, there's no way your child's
  3. going to be affected. You may pass the allele on, but they'll
  4. be a carrier. There's no way they're going to be affected, because your
  5. partner doesn't have the allele themselves. But if you're mating with
  6. somebody in your family, there's a possibility, high possibility that they also
  7. have this rare allele. And the fact that both of you
  8. could give that allele to the child indicates a much higher probability
  9. the child's going to be affected by that recessive trait.
