ADHD affects roughly four percent of adults, but the amount of relationships affected is much higher. The divorce rate is nearly twice as high in marriages when one or both partners have ADHD. In fact, research has shown that on average about 61 percent of marriages actually end in divorce when ADHD is involved.
ADHD symptoms add consistent and predictable problems to any marriage in which one or both partners have the condition. As long as their ADHD remains untreated, or undertreated, these patterns can leave both partners feeling lonely, unhappy, and ultimately overwhelmed by their relationship.
It is true that adults with ADHD can be hard to love, but once you understand the true burden they are carrying, your heart will open up with understanding. Love and compassion will ultimately take the place of frustration and resentment, and you will start to see into the good of their hearts.
