    As a woman in a 25 year marriage with undiagnosed adhd spouse and 4 more years after diagnosis. I have too many troubling times to list. The marriage was ok (not great), until I was diagnosed with a rare, serious and progressive disease. Then the marriage was clearly a lonely place to be. My advice – respectfully, don’t do it, go find a non adhd partner. Save yourself a lot of work, frustration and time lost. Circumstances may be such that you really need someone to support you in the future and with an Adhd spouse everything is 10x harder.

    I have been in a 25 year marriage with undiagnosed ADHD and 3 years where the diagnosis was known. I unfortunately was diagnosed with a rare, serious disease a few years ago. I won’t list all of the problems and issues as it is a very long list. I will simply say – move on, and look elsewhere for a partner in life where there is no ADHD. Life in a partnership with ADHD might be liveable when you are strong yourself, but when you need support due to a health crisis or other serious issue – you realize your partnership is a very lonely place.
