Communication is one of the biggest challenges faced by people with
Asperger's Syndrome (AS), yet an Asperger marriage requires
communication more than any other relationship. Thousands of people live
in Asperger marriages without knowing the answers to important
questions such as `What behaviours indicate that my spouse has AS?' `Is
it worthwhile to get a diagnosis?' `Is there hope for improvement?'
Katrin Bentley has been married for 18 years. Since
receiving her husband's diagnosis of AS, their marriage has improved
substantially. They learnt to accept each other's different approaches
to life and found ways to overcome problems and misunderstandings. Today
they are happily married and able to communicate effectively.
Alone Together shares the struggle of one couple to
rescue their marriage. It is uplifting and humorous, and includes plenty
of tips to making an Asperger marriage succeed. This book offers
couples hope, encouragement and strategies for their own marriages.
