Talking or writing about marriage has never been a goal of mine, yet here I am.
A generous invitation to take over the Practical Family blog led to a series of articles, in which I shared my experience in a neurodiverse marriage. Being married to someone whose brain functions differently than what society considers “normal” means there’s a never a dull moment. We have a lot of laughs, but I have also shed a lot of tears. And I’m not the only one.
Divorce rates are high in marriages where one partner has ADHD, ASD, or processing disorders.
These marriages aren’t easy, but that doesn’t make them bad. It makes us question the standard of comparison. My marriage doesn’t look like those described in books and movies, but both Brian and I are committed to making it work.
To find out how we’ve struggled and triumphed in the areas of parenting, finances and romance, see the series over at the Practical Family blog. I hope you find encouragement.
