Article: Marital Quality and Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
This brief article examines divorce rates and marital satisfaction for parents of adolescents and adults with ASDs.

It also indicates that parents with higher marital satisfaction report less stress when it comes to parenting than parents in poor marital relationships.
