Salam everyone,

I'm just curious to know your opinions - preferably from experience, if possible...

Is it better for a man/woman who suffers from chronic illness to marry someone in the same boat? Like would they be able to relate to each other in ways that people who aren't chronically ill wouldn't understand ?

So an example would be colitis, lyme disease, crohn's etc. Having to change diets/restricted diets, be on long terms medication, suffer fatigue etc.

I'd love to hear from people who do have these conditions, or even family members/friends... and what worked or hasn't worked for you
