The symptoms of ADHD can have profound effects on intimate relationships such as dating and marriage. But even though ADHD is present, it doesn’t mean that the person with ADHD is the sole cause of problems. Transforming your relationship starts with both partners understanding the role that ADHD plays and nondefensive listening. Melissa Orlov, the founder of ADHD Marriage, provides tools to help couples create a responsive relationship that feels “just right” for both individuals.

As a marriage consultant, she helps ADHD-affected couples from around the world rebalance their relationships and learn to thrive through her seminars, consulting practice, and books.
