Are you married to someone with ADHD? Are you the partner with ADHD?

Jennifer Elkins guides us through the experience of marriage and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

ADHD and Marriage

Marriage may come with expected challenges but for partners where one member has ADHD those challenges present their own unique set of approaches.


Learn about how ADHD may show-up in your marriage and what strategies may work to overcome any of the associated challenges.

From the book...

"When I was in my early thirties, my husband and I were at a crossroads. We had been together for about ten years but found ourselves starting to argue constantly. Suddenly, we weren’t connecting; we were drifting apart. Even though I didn’t yet know that the culprit was ADHD, I knew something was happening to our relationship that was potentially irreparable."


She learned that problems with communication, which were present in her marriage, are common in couples where one partner has ADHD and the other does not. She and her husband found and read Melissa Orlov’s book The ADHD Effect on Marriage, in which she wrote about the Parent-Child dynamic. They were stunned to learn that they had taken on those roles: her husband assuming the parent role, while she gave in to the rebelliousness she thought she had shed as a teenager.


They fought furiously to save their marriage, and it was worth the fight.

Working with a therapist

Science-based couples therapy is marriage counseling using a structured, therapeutic approach to help couples. It is designed to slow you down and reconnect with yourself and your spouse.

An assessment is an organized way your couples therapist learns more about you and your relationship. It involves an extensive questionnaire that you and your partner complete on your own, as well as three online sessions with your therapist (both individually and together). The questionnaire is completed online as well.

Ours is the most comprehensive marital assessment available today. We call it The "State of the Union." After your assessment, you will objectively know how good or bad things are, before you commit to ongoing or intensive online couples therapy.
