Can a bipolar person keep up a marriage?


Yes. Most definately. But it probably takes more work, determination, and commitment on the part of the person with the illness than it does the partner without. For people with bipolar disorder, normal marital problems and routine aggravations are too often blown out of portportion due to black-and-white thinking patterns and mood instability (and self blame because they have a mental illness) that can quickly lead to interpersonal armageddons, feelings of hopelessness, and to all kinds of self harm. My partner and I have been togther over 33 years. Longer than the vast majority of couples we know. So yeah. People with a bipolar diagnosis can “keep up” with marriage. Like every marriage, it takes commitment and teamwork, love and forgiveness.
