I'm happily married, but i'm a funny one, since i'm autistic *and* married, raising a special needs child and a NT child with a very wonderful loving spouse. I guess raising a special needs kids didn't bother him since he picked me, knowing *I* was special needs. :P

I'm still married, but I have bad marriage days. I don't know if that makes sense.

Married 9 years - ugh.  It has been a struggle.

I actually heard or read a study that the high percentage of divorce with kids with ASD was wrong.  And that the percentage of divorce parents with kids with ASD are about the same as parents with typical kids.

Here is the link to the article from WebMd - http://www.webmd.com/brain/autism/news/20100519/autism-famlies-high-divorce-rate-is-a-myth
