Will marionberries break into my house and take over my life?

Jun 2015
We'd love to have some marionberries growing along the southern side of our house which gets great sun.  I've heard horror stories of blackberries taking over and nearly impossible to get rid of. So, here are my questions: Are marionberries as aggressive? Will they have potential to damage my foundation if grown within a few feet? if unpicked berries drop, is it likely they will become new plants? Will they spread over time or remain pretty compact?
