sickling trait partners marrying

Hello there my partner and I are trait carriers and when we informed my parents of our decision to marry they objected. I live in Ghana and I would like to know if anyone knows of any options for us. We have heard about bone marrow transplant and also PGD but every African health care professional says it's in its experimental stages.
I'm 24 and he is 30. We don't want to consider breaking up.  Please we need your advice and help.  Thank you
