The fact that a person can cope fairly well most of the time can betray the severity of the disability.
Fortunately, we’ve come a long way and awareness about autism spectrum disorders continues to improve.
A partner may have the feeling of being along or having to carry the emotional weight for both halves of the relationship.
Relationships with an adult who has Asperger’s are far from doomed though.

They often continue the tendency to hold conversations that feel one-sided, robotic, or monotonous.
Adults with Asperger’s also will continue to have similar fixations in narrow interests.
