If I fell in love with someone, then the fact that he was on the spectrum wouldn't stop me from marrying him.
Quoting Anonymous: Honestly, probably not. And I realize that my answer is colored by personal experiences, but I'm not sure what else I would have to go on. The only autistic older teenage boys and men that I have met have been rude, violent, and incredibly annoying to be around. I don't see how I could get past that to stand being married to and/or having kids with someone like that.
Quoting -Copper-: No. Aspergers, perhaps, if they were on the higher end of functioning, but in general, no. I can't be with someone who can't match me blow for blow, and the more passive, socially awkward personalities of even high-functioning autistic people would not be able to handle me.
I've dated just ordinary shy/passive men before and it does NOT work, I don't mean to, but if someone is a more passive personality, I completely control the relationship, and that not only makes them unhappy, it makes me unhappy. I used to seek out more passive men, because I needed to be in control, but it never left me any happier.
Alpha needs alpha, as douchey as that sounds, it's the only way to describe it.
no I couldn't.
