Chris and Gisela have been partners for twelve years. Five years ago Chris was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. For Chris, this was an explanation of why he had always regarded himself as ‘socially handicapped’. For Gisela, it meant coming to terms with a marriage in which there would never be an intuitive understanding despite Chris’s good intentions. For the couple it was the beginning of a long and still unfinished process of learning to live with a disability regarded by some as incompatible with marriage.
