Can diabetes destroy a marriage?

It can, of course. Some marriages are so tenuous that they can't survive any adversity. In such cases, if it hadn't been diabetes that caused the breakup, something else would have.

Diabetes can also strengthen marriages. When one partner develops a potentially life-threatening or life shortening condition, this makes the other realize how important the previously taken-for-granted person really is. Working together to control diabetes can, in fact, bring a new closeness. We heard of a longmarried couple whose children had grown and who had gradually become so consumed by their individual interests that they hardly had anything left in common. Each was running on a separate track. When the wife was diagnosed diabetic, the tracks merged as they headed toward the same goal.
