|Successful Marriage including Bipolar|
|Written by Imnoangel|

I found a very interesting article online. It discusses bipolar marriage and how it can be successful. I think everyone should check it out if you have a chance.
In fact, research has shown that there is little or no difference between the state of the marriages where one spouse has bipolar disorder but is in remission, and other married couples in general.
Further, both groups had similar perceptions of significant events during the course of their marriages. They shared the same feelings about their courtship, first year of marriage, and the degree to which the marriage had met expectations.
In other words, marriage to a person with bipolar disorder who is in treatment and not experiencing any episodes is pretty much the same as being married to a "well" person.
