first most u can get married with this is not a contraindication to get the married.

second point arthritis is multifactorial only genetic predispositon would not lead to flow blown ostearthritis.

this can been prevent by not increasing your weight,Wearing a knee cap, avoiding climbing stairs/ squatting/ sitting cross legged, using western toilets regular excercixe of quadericps and hamstrings muscles will help decreasing the pain and progression of the arthritis.
