I was not surprised when I heard the statistics about higher divorce rates among couples who have children with autism. The stress that accompanies a child’s special needs is challenging. Hubster and I are celebrating our seventh anniversary this month. I certainly wouldn’t call us marriage experts after seven years, but I would say that we have weathered an enormous amount of stress in those seven years and we are now stronger than ever. I think our marriage has hit its stride this past year after enduring many ups and downs.
