While MS affects the whole family, in the case of partners MS is experienced by both. In a relationship, it’s normal for the partner of an MS patient to care and worry about the other. However, the society also recommends everyone tries to keep their relationships healthy and balanced. In order to do so, it’s important that both partners give and receive in the relationship, regardless of the alterations that MS brings to the family. It is also important to preserve communication and intimacy.
