Physical and Mental Well-Being of Women in Neurodiverse Relationships: A Comparative Study

Pnina Arad,* Zipora Shechtman, Tony Attwood

Most people do not realize how common the phenomenon of neurodiverse relationships is worldwide. There does not yet exist a broad clinical and public awareness of autistic men in a long-term relationship nor enough information about the well-being of typical women in such relationships. This topic has received very little attention in the literature and in research. The authors of this paper intended to fill this gap and conducted an empirical study exploring the experiences and health condition of women in neurodiverse relationships.
