Hello, Dr. Roberson. I am just now reading this blog for the 1st time, and am very interested in what you have written about neurodiverse couples. I’m the A.S. half, married to an NT husband for over 46 years, now, & we’ve been together for over 50 years. (! it’s still hard to believe when I see it in writing!) I didn’t even suspect that I’d been born with high-functioning autism until I was almost 60, but I’d been diagnosed with ADHD decades ago. And I have no idea how we’ve managed to stay together for all these years, because we literally had years of the downward spirals you speak of. There’s no doubt that my husband is NT, but sometimes he (jokingly?) says he thinks he must have Asperger’s, too. Maybe it’s just that we’ve been together for so long that some of my AS has rubbed off on him. Anyway, I do hope to learn more about communicating better, even at our age! Thank you for all you’ve written and done to help those like us.
