Lazy spouse or A.D.H.D marriage?

If you can't rely on your spouse to pay bills, pick up the kids, or do chores, then your marriage may be suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder according to mental health experts quoted in the New York Times.

Common symptoms of the disorder include distraction, disorganization, and forgetfulness, which sure can seem a lot like laziness, selfishness, and a general lack of caring.

Obviously not every lazy or inattentive spouse has A.D.H.D.- some people really just don't care whether or not the garbage is taken out. But according to the New York Times, 4% of adults are living with the disorder. As many as half of children with the disorder never grow out of all the symptoms and some adults may have never even been diagnosed.

Kyra will be talking about A.D.H.D marriages with psychotherapist and author Sari Solden during the 10AM hour of the CNN Newsroom.

Do you have any questions for Sari Solden? Has A.D.H.D. put a strain on your marriage? Please post your questions and stories below and Kyra will use some on the air.
