I don't know the exact probability, but I have been told that there is a smaller chance to pass Crohn's  to your own kids. I have Crohn's and was told that there is a slight chance I could pass it onto my girls. If you are considering not marrying because of this, I wouldn't worry. It is not a totally awful thing that can't be dealt with and does go into remission. It can be managed. Does your soon to be DH have a severe case that concerns you?

I did manage to find this question, which is similar to yours on the net. Only took a couple of google searches:

http://genetics.emory.edu/ask/question.php?question_id=2603

It goes on to give genetic probability in the subsequent websites, I think. Hopefully this may give you a more specific answer. Good luck.
