Imagine all of the stresses that come with marriage- money, time management, communication, kids, etc...great, now add in autism 🤪
It is estimated that the yearly cost of supporting someone with autism spectrum disorder is around $60,000. Jay alone spends 20 hours a week in therapy - NOT including the time we work with him ourselves! Ummm excuse me, but that is a part time job in itself! Stressed yet? Did I mention we have TWO autistic children?!
Basically, any hardship you can imagine is probably that much more of a burden for autism families. That’s why I’m so proud that Jordan and I have been able to keep our marriage fruitful over the years. Despite everything, marriage has never felt hard with this guy. God has blessed me beyond measure with this union.
Even though we are stretched incredibly thin, Jordan and I have always made a point to pursue each other daily. I genuinely believe that is absolutely paramount for a successful marriage. What is the best marriage advice you can give, friends?
