I have to say, this whole discussion saddens me. I was married to a person I know deep down has Asperger's for 9 years. We had 4 children together. It wasn't until a year after the divorce, when I first heard of Asperger's in trying to find out what was going on with my oldest son, that I realized that this was what my ex husband has. Now Ive gone back and forth between narcissism and Asperger's for him, because they are so closely related. It's true, that life married with an Aspie (If this is what my ex husband has) is lonely, it makes you feel worthless. Divorce with children of a person with Asperger's is 10 times worse. You cannot make mistakes, because it will be amplified. Professionals not realizing what they have before them, inadvertently can wreak havoc, by simply making suggestions.
It saddens me though, because my son was finally diagnosed, and to hear people talk about NEVER marry a person with Asperger's makes me sad for my sons future. There are a lot of social skills therapies, but are there therapies to teach how to make a relationship work? I dont want this to be my sons future, but I also don't want anyone to go through what I have.View Thread
