We all know that when it comes to Relationships/Marriage it is a bumpy ride, now let’s make it even bumpier when one or both partners have ADHD.

My guest Melissa Orlov, a relationship consultant, talks about the impacts of ADHD on Marriage.

She covered some key topics such as:

  • ADHD entrepreneurs working with non-ADHD partner, pressures that it creates, and some possible solutions
  • How both partners can create opportunities that are win-win for both
  • Common themes of ADHD traits that might be misunderstood by a none-ADHD partner
  • The high achiever professional who has figured out success at work but has challenges in marriage and how to manage ADHD between Work Life and Family Life.
