I hear you.
Not only that. After a stroke, the spouse is dealing with a totally different person. We lost some of our abilities. We no longer have the same energy or even personality. All these make it very hard to keep the relationship it once was.
I heard many heartbreaking stories how stroke destroys families. I also heard many stories how stroke starts new relationships.
Within Strokefocus team, there are people who found their new love and even got married after stroke. So it really depends.
