I think they're psycho-conditioned so they don't get Post Traumatic Stress. I don't think Space Marines can even experience Trauma to begin with...

Tee hee. KanmuX is funny. Anyway, there've been lots of different opinions on this, all over the place. I think that they can't, for the reasons everyone else has said, and even if they can it's not easy for them. You're bred for battle. You've been implanted with nineteen different organs, and you've lived through 100 years of solid battle, nothing else. Having a relationship is a possibility? Imagine the huge amounts of anti-depressants they must take for their PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)!

On another note, it'd be interesting to write a romance based around a Space Marine. It'd let you into what Space Marines really are past all the psycho-engineering, brain-washing and genetic alteration.
..that'd make a good black library novel... hmm...

I could almost imagine the romance scene:



Brother Captain Johnson sat across the room from the human woman. It was a filthy little hovel on his homeworld, where he had been allowed to remain on a short vacation from his many duties. Of course, he now wanted to try out something that the puny guardsmen always seemed to chatter about: love.
The two weren't off to a good start, however. Johnson had just barged through the door a few minutes earlier and happened to destroy the entire doorway just by walking through it. The human woman was obviously upset, and seemed more so after Johnson sat down on the chair, breaking it. This didn't seem to bother him, however. Johnson was content sitting on the floor.
"I desire love," said Johnson, almost unconvincingly.
"What the hell are you barging into my house for, you big damn mutated freak! Go back to the damn military!" shouted the woman.
"I desire love. You will provide love," said Johnson, and the two just sat there for a few minutes, the woman staring icily at Johnson, until he asked "Is this love?"
"GET THE HELL OUT OF MY HOUSE!!!"
"Citizen, I desire love. You will provide me with love. Do not make me unholster my bolter."
"ARBITER!!! ARBITER!!!" the woman shrieked, before Johnson grasped her face in his lightning claw. The results were not pretty, and Johnson found himself leaving the small hut.

This time, however, he knew he'd have better luck... a power fist did not cut like a lightning claw did.

I think a better question would be "is there such a thing as love in the 41st millenium". When was the last time you saw some love?

I think he would be smart enough not to wear a powerfist though, unless he misunderstands what people mean by"protection":shifty:...

Budha, Imagine a marine's idea of a romantic date, a flamer lit sharing of rations followed by side-by-side praying to the emperor then conquereing a few worlds then going getting into the back of the land raider for......











More praying to the emperor

Not following you there. How is the marine's genetic structure supposed to change, exactly? You're saying that their entire genome rewrites itself?
Pretty much. I remember an early reference that noted even changes to the facial characteristics and hair color of Marines during the process. The finished Marine will generally resemble the Chapter's Primarch in subtle ways. Other genetic abnormalities will also be written, like the Canus Helix in Space Wolves and the genetic memories of Sanguinus in the Blood Angels.
Hmm. Perhaps. I can understand a little gene splicing going on, but I imagine most of the changes are not actually genetic. I'd imagine it is largely changes in the expression of genes that would change.

You dirty man...........:P And nice line with " From Astartes with love." You got this from a James bond movie didn't you?

But seeing that their size are very huge to begin with and super strengh, I think it wll be indeed hard for them to have children the niormal way. And besides if they can do that in the first place, they won't need to take geneseeds from fallen space marines.
