However, this kind of excitement diminishes over time, along with the adrenaline rush as the ADD spouse looks elsewhere for stimulation.
Of course, this is not conscious on his part, and he may not even be aware that this has happened. Partners of individuals with ADD often get the feeling that all their good advice and suggestions are not taken to heart.
We are emotional, unpredictable, impulsive and more fun than you can possibly imagine.
If you have fallen for a woman who has ADD, I don't know whether to congratulate you or commiserate with you.
Read that again, you probably don’t hear it often enough. All marriages have their ups and down, but if one or both spouses have ADHD, the relationship is significantly more challenging.

Being plagued with distractions is something I have accepted.If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware.If you are at an office or shared network, you can ask the network administrator to run a scan across the network looking for misconfigured or infected devices. You’re late for appointments, if you even remember that you have them. You say things without thinking or tune out during important conversations. And still, adults with ADHD are completely capable of happy, fulfilling marriages.It’s complex, it’s hard, it’s beautiful, it’s not impossible. The entwined threads can either be sturdy or frayed.
