Yes, adults and teens with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can remain in one monogamous relationship while dating or married. While ADHD brings an additional set of challenges into a relationship, the challenges do not need to be considered overwhelming.

All long-term relationships -- with friends or lovers -- take time, energy, understanding, and effort to grow and maintain. ADHD medication management, counseling, skill training, and education are often the pieces used to help support ADHD relationships.
