Many adults are receiving ADHD diagnoses later in life, so it is often shocking for couples to discover that attention deficit disorder has been a major influence on their relationship journey all along. A diagnosis can explain, finally, all those struggles over household chores, arguments at the kitchen table, and daily misunderstandings over small things. It can foster better understanding of the idiosyncrasies you thought were a normal part of your relationship,  and help chart a way forward.

As you learn about all the ways that ADHD affects your partner, you can develop strategies to make peace with the diagnosis and each other — like communicating more clearly, moving toward relationship goals, and realizing that your partner is more than a diagnosis or a set of symptoms.
