Is your spouse’s eating disorder affecting your marriage?

As a society we are growing more aware of mental illness and the effects it can have on an individual and their loved ones. We now observe National Mental Health Awareness Month in May each year to recognize and bring awareness about mental health disorders and the effects it has on the people suffering with a disorder. Mental Health Awareness Month acknowledges disorders such as depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder among many others. Now that we are aware of what mental health disorders are and how they affect an individual, we now have to discover just how the disorder can affect those people close to the individual suffering. Eating Disorder is among those disorders recognized in the National Mental Health Awareness Month. How can having an eating disorder affect a marriage?
