Marriage is never easy, but it's even harder when one or both partners have ADHD! Meygan and Casey Caston say they are the least likely couple to succeed in marriage. Not only does Casey have ADHD, but between them their parents have been married a dozen times, so instability was a theme in their youth. They've had their share of screaming matches, name calling and threatening divorce, but luckily discovered tools and resources to help them become better spouses, as they now have a loving and thriving relationship. And they're helping thousands of other couples achieve the same results!
