Do you have any expectations or standards? If not, then you should have pretty easy time finding someone.

I was married three times, currently I'm unmarried, but I have several Boyfriends/Girlfriends that I'm partnered with.

I'm pretty different from most people.

I'm married right now.

I've had a few serious relationships and one previous engagement.

There are plenty of people with high functioning autism who have a girlfriend/boyfriend or have been married a long time. And perhaps even a few with severe autism. So yes, there is hope that you will get married.

Ask The Magic Conch™.

Seriously though maybe. I've had a couple somehow. Though I'd rather not talk about it.

I have other mental & some physical disabilities limiting me with lots of things in addition to my Asepergers. I've been ilviging with my 3rd girlfriend for over 3 years now. She's also on the spectrum & has other issues besides Aspergers. I met her on this forum.

Aspies take longer to develop social skills. As romantic relationships require the most amount of skill, most Aspies get married later in life, so I wouldn't worry about your lack of success at a young age. You will have plenty of opportunities later in life for relationships.
